Abstract:
In August 2004 Albion Archaeology undertook an archaeological field evaluation on land at Manor Farm, Woburn Road, Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire. The aim was to establish the extent and condition of any archaeological remains located within the study area, to characterise them and to allow their importance to be assessed. The evaluation would also allow an appropriate mitigation strategy to be developed. The study area lies in a landscape rich in archaeological remains dating from the prehistoric, Roman, Saxon and medieval periods. The site is bordered by Morteyne Manor, a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM11547) to the north-east. Three trial trenches were opened. They were located within the boundaries of the proposed development area on land immediately adjacent to the proposed new housing plots. A total of eight archaeological features were recorded: These consisted of two ditches and three postholes sealed below subsoil deposits. A further three possible post medieval pits were observed cutting through subsoil deposits. None of these excavated features produced any artefactual or ecofactual material. Despite modern disturbance and contamination, the evaluation demonstrated the presence of archaeological features within the study area that were relatively well preserved. The discovery of field boundaries and postholes suggests field subdivision and demarcation perhaps contemporary with Morteyne Manor''s adjacent field systems. Further discovery of buried soil horizons adds to the further possibility of good archaeological preservation within the study area.
