A Roman cemetery was excavated in a gravel quarry in 1945. It contained 35 burials, all of adults. One had probably been buried in a coffin, one had a small pottery beaker with it, and one had nine Roman coins, which had been wrapped up in cloth. The cemetery could belong to a Roman settlement which lay just to the north.
