Archaeologists have now completed a 12-week study at the site of Arla’s new dairy at Aston Clinton. Among the artefacts discovered on site were the remains of the last occupants of the Roman settlement. These will now be reinterred at Buckland Cemetery once they have been analysed. Other items found were quantities of pottery, including high status Samian ware and animal bone.
