Abstract:
This short item reports on the recent excavation of an unusual type of Iron Age settlement that seems to have been occupied only during the summer months. Located on farmland in Northamptonshire, near Rugby, the site was investigated by the Birmingham University Field Archaeology Unit in advance of development. The settlement, one of the largest of this period known in Britain, covered an area of around twelve hectares and included about ninety structures. The heavy clay soils of the area would have been more suitable for pastoral than arable farming in the Iron Age, and the village may represent a summer grazing settlement of a type more commonly associated with the transhumance culture of the western and northern uplands.
