Introduction

Land adjacent to M1, Courteenhall, Northamptonshire: Geophysical Survey (OASIS ID: headland5-328784)

Headland Archaeology (UK) Ltd undertook a geophysical (magnetometer) survey of a 5 hectare site adjacent to the M1 at Courteenhall, Northamptonshire, to provide information on the archaeological potential of the site in advance of the construction of a proposed poultry shed and associated infrastructure. The survey has not identifed any anomalies of any archaeological potential with the dataset dominated by inear anomalies refecting medieval and/or post medieval ploughing, land division and modern land drainage. A service pipe has been identifed in the south of the site. Therefore, on the basis of the geophysical survey, the archaeological potential of the site is assessed as low, corroborating the results of the Desk-Based Heritage Assessment.
