Abstract:
Archaeological investigations and a watching brief were undertaken along the route of a water pipeline. The archaeological fieldwork was in three phases: geophysical survey to clarify aerial photographic data and earthworks, possibly relating to SAM 20615; excavation before construction of areas of potential in the vicinity of SAM 27908; and monitoring of the pipeline during construction. The archaeological fieldwork produced evidence for a Late Iron Age ditch; Roman period features thought to be associated with the known Roman villa at Radwell; and a group of three sub-circular or oval structural features of unknown function and probable medieval date. The oval features were east of linear earthworks with associated ditches where fragments of prehistoric pottery, Bronze Age or Neolithic in date, were recovered. Ditches and a section of a trackway, thought to be of medieval origin, were also uncovered in the environs of the Roman villa. In addition, an early post-medieval ditch running beside the A1(M) road was excavated and a probable post-medieval or modern burnt feature, interpreted as a fire-pit, was recorded. Near the village of Norton, at the south of the route, scatters of medieval pottery were recovered. [Au(abr)]
