Full Description

An area of 1.7 hectares was evaluated by trial trenching prior to submission of a planning application to develop the site. Thirteen trenches were excavated, largely focussed on targets identified during a geophysical survey by Northamptonshire Archaeology. Several pits and ditches were revealed by trenching, some of which related to features identified during the geophysical survey. Where dating was possible, features were associated with Late Saxon and to a lesser extent, medieval finds and appear to represent elements of a field system with suggestions of settlement either on the site or nearby. Activity of this type and period has been recorded in the direct vicinity of the proposed development area (S1).
