Abstract:
Following earlier desktop assessment, an initial field survey, and a ì\nprogramme of archaeological evaluation work, rescue excavations ì\nwere conducted at five of the archaeological sites along the ì\nroute of the A435 Norton Lenchwick Bypass (Sites C1-4, C5, D, E and F), ì\nin addition to those undertaken in the outer bailey of Boteler's ì\nCastle (Site G) [see separate AIP record for latter: E.80.0002]. ì\nThe excavations at Sites C1-4, C5, D, E, and F provided ì\ninformation on over 2500 years of human activity in the Arrow ì\nValley, from the early Neolithic until the Saxon period. Evidence ì\nof human settlement dating from the later Neolithic to the Saxon ì\nperiod was recorded along a 3km stretch of the corridor, on the ì\ngravel terraces of the River Arrow. In Broom (Site E; WA 4908), ì\nlater Neolithic cremation burials and a late Bronze Age funerary ì\npyre were found on the same hill top chosen by later Saxon ì\nsettlers. Early Bronze Age cremation pots were unearthed at ì\nWixford along with limited Iron Age activity (Site F; WA 4910). ì\nExtensive late Iron Age - Romano-British settlement was found, ì\nstretching from Broom (Site D; WA 5081) to Salford Priors (Sites ì\nC1-4, C5; WA 1499), where parts of a villa complex were ì\nexcavated. For all periods, palaeoenvironmental evidence shed ì\nlight on past farming activities and their impact on the ì\nlandscape within the valley.ì\n\n[See also separate AIP records for Sites C (C1-4, C5), D, E and ì\nF: E.80.0004/0005/0006/0007]
