Full Description

2009: Excavation following evaluation revealed a Bronze Age Beaker burial and an urned cremation. The Beaker burial comprised a poorly-preserved skeleton, representing a child, which was orientated NE/SW and was lying in a crouched position on its left side with the skull facing east. A Beaker vessel was placed just beside the forehead. The cremation comprised an unusually large good vessel which contained burn human bone representing the remains of an adult and a copper-alloy awls. The other features which were revealed included two gullies and 10 dispersed pits or postholes, all of which were undated. One of the gullies contained an early Bronze Age thumbnail scraper. Eighty-one periglacial channels and eight tree hollows were also identified. The Icknield Way passes through the area of Moulton Paddocks (S1, S2, S3, S4).
