Abstract:
This work was instigated on the advice of Northamptonshire Heritage and aimed to establish the archaeological potential of the site at Oakley Vale. The scheme included a geophysical survey and trial trenching which was designed to identify areas of potential archaeological importance. The trial trenching uncovered no significant archaeological remains; identified features were either post-medieval or modern in date. The trial trenching identified a significant level of modern disturbance in the area, the result of ironstone extraction, agricultural disturbance and railway workings. The findings in this report indicate that it is unlikely that significant archaeological deposits exist in the study area. The geophysical survey indicated various anomalies that have now been interpreted as having a post-medieval or modern origin. Scatters of medieval and a fragment of Saxon pottery recovered during field artefact collection can now be considered to be the result of nightsoiling and not originating from archaeological deposits.
