Introduction

Land at Cottage Farm, Glen Road, Oadby, Leicestershire. Archaeological Excavation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-317891)

An archaeological excavation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in April and May 2017 on land at Cottage Farm, Glen Road, Oadby, Leicestershire. Two excavation areas were located within the development area, targeted on features identified in a previous evaluation of the site (CA 2014).

The excavation revealed evidence of a rectilinear field system or field systems that limited ceramic evidence suggests was of Iron Age to Roman period origin. This was overlain by ridge and furrow agriculture that is likely to be medieval or possibly post-medieval in origin. The other scattered features across the site are undated but their sparse and irregular distribution, and the sparse finds assemblage, suggests there was no settlement, or other intensive occupation in the area.
