Abstract:
Excavation of a late Iron Age enclosure at Colley Hill, Colmworth, Bedfordshire (TL 106 582) in May 2012. The work took place in advance of development., with c. 265 sq,m of the Iron Age being investigate. Pottery attested to settlement during the Middle Iron Age (c.400 - c.1000BC) and the Late Iron Age (c.100BC to AD43). The late Iron Age ditch proved to share characteristics of the 'Wooton Hill' style of enclosure and it is understood to have defines a sub-rectangular site of about 0.2 hectares. A second phase of Iron Age activity was also present. The artefactual evidence suggests abandonment of the settlement before he Roman conquest. In view of the lacunae in present knowledge about the charater and extent of Iron Age settlement beyond the valley and gravel areas of Bedfordshire, the discovery is considered to be both locally and regionally significant. The excavation also revealed that during the medieval period the site was within the open field system of Colmworth.
