Abstract

Between 5th and 7th September 2005, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at the Grange Rothley, Leicestershire (NGR: SK 5867 1273) on behalf of John Samuels Archaeological Consultants (JSAC). The evaluation revealed evidence for a Christian cemetery, possibly Romano-British in date, within the south-western corner of the development area. There was also evidence for the use of some of the land as permanent pasture or flood meadows. No evidence was encountered for the extent of the medieval village of Rothley. Phase 2 Between the 26th and 28th of June 2006, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at the Grange Rothley, Leicestershire (NGR: SK 5867 1273) on behalf of John Samuels Archaeological Consultants (JSAC). The evaluation was a continuation of one previously undertaken by OA during September 2005, the results of which are included in this report. A Christian cemetery, of unknown date, was located in the southwestern corner of the development area. There was also evidence for the use of some of the land as permanent pasture or flood meadows. Fragments of later Roman pottery and CBM were recovered from Trench 8, suggesting the presence of nearby settlement activity. No evidence was encountered for the extent of the medieval village of Rothley
