In September 2016 Oxford Archaeology undertook archaeological investigations on an area of land to the north of London Road on the edge of Great Glen in Leicestershire (centred on SP 6514 9809). The investigations were undertaken as part of a housing development and consisted of three parts: an open area excavation, a watching brief, and a geoarchaeological trench. The open area excavation revealed the remains of a penannular gully dating to the Middle or Late Iron Age with a near complete ceramic jar intentionally deposited in one of its terminals. The feature almost certainly represents an Iron Age roundhouse with an accompanying structured deposit. The only other archaeological features were two plough furrows, one of which severely truncated the penannular gully, part of the medieval/post-medieval open field system of Great Glen.
