Abstract:
An archaeological investigation was carried out within a field where substantial cropmarks had been recorded by aerial photography. Desk-based assessment of the parish of St Peter Farndon had identified that several large scatters of Neolithic and Bronze Age flint artefacts had been recorded in the area, and that Romano-British pottery fragments had been found. The Roman Fosse Way passed nearby, and a fort which had been constructed for the defence of this road had lain 1km to the south-west. Several earthworks dating from 1646, when Parliamentarian forces had fortified the village, also lay within the parish. During the evaluation, Romano-British ditches and other features which appeared to have been associated with a river crossing point were recorded, and pottery of Roman and 18th-19th century date was recovered. Suggestions of potential structural evidence indicated that the field may have been used in a military capacity. It was concluded that the site contained a fine example of potential early Roman fortification associated with dated settlement within the Trent Valley. [AIP]
