Abstract:
Eight trenches (total length 52.8m by 2m) were excavated as part of the evaluation. Five of these contained archaeological features. A series of pits were identified, some of which produced pottery of Iron Age date. A ditch of likely Iron Age or Romano-British date, three medieval furrows and a series of post holes of unknown date were also recorded. The Iron Age features were likely to have been associated with known Iron Age settlement to the northeast, also in Highfields. The ditch was on a similar alignment to excavated examples from the land directly to the south, which were of Romano-British date. The medieval furrows were also on the same east-west alignment as those encountered in the excavation on land directly to the south, and also known from aerial photographs of the area. [Au(abr)]
