Two spreads of burnt-mound material were uncovered immediately to the west of a field drain which formed the field boundary between Fields 56F07 and 56F08. The drain had been straightened and lined with concrete in the recent past and had truncated the burnt-mound material. No remains of the burnt mound survived on the east side of the drain. The larger spread measured 14m north-south by 8m and survived to a depth of 0.4m. The smaller spread, measuring 6m north-south by 5m and only 0.1m deep, has almost certainly been dragged from the main area of burnt-mound material. No troughs or associated features were uncovered and no finds were recovered.
