This report presents the results of a programme of archaeological evaluation, on a c 4ha parcel of land, off Staveley Lane, Eckington, Derbyshire (NGR SK 4292 7874; Fig 1). This was undertaken between 5th August and 9th August 2013 by Oxford Archaeology North, in accordance with a Written Scheme of Investigation produced by CgMs Ltd (Mortimer 2013a). A Heritage Statement produced by CgMs Ltd (Mortimer 2013b), incorporating the results of a geophysical survey (Gater 2013) had been previously undertaken for the site and submitted to the Local Planning Authority). The works comprised trial trenching to evaluate ‘probable’ and ‘possible’ geophysical anomalies, as well as the interiors of enclosures and a sample of ‘blank’ areas. They were carried out at the request of Steve Baker, Development Control Archaeologist for Derby and Derbyshire, in advance of the submission of an Outline planning application for residential development of the site.
