Abstract:
<summary>A two-phased archaeological evaluation was undertaken for an area of land, containing a number of complex archaeological sites, situated to the north of Higham Ferrers between the A45 by-pass and the proposed A6 by-pass. Phase 1, comprising fieldwalking and plotting of crop marks, identified heavy concentrations of Roman pottery to the north of a previously recorded settlement, including discrete stone scatters possibly denoting the presence of individual buildings associated with a series of crop mark enclosures, traces of Saxon occupation, possible ring-ditches, a large oval enclosure, rectangular enclosures, linear boundaries and pits. Phase 2, comprising magnetometer survey and targeted trenching of areas of crop marks and artefact scatters, identified a Middle to Late Iron Age settlement, comprising ring-ditches, rectangular enclosures of varying sizes, pits and long linear boundaries; a Romano-British settlement, including evidence of timber and stone buildings; and traces of early/middle Saxon ({italon}circa{italoff} AD 400-850) and late Saxon ({italon}circa{italoff} AD 850-1100) [?settlement], including a probable sunken-featured building of late Saxon date and a large, incomplete oval enclosure. {italon}AIP{italoff}
