Abstract

Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by CgMS Consulting on behalf of Miller Homes to undertake the evaluation of the land for development at Hackwood Farm, Mickleover, Derbyshire. This comprised the excavation of 20 evaluation trenches, each measuring 50m by 2m where possible. The scope and arrangement of the trenches was agreed between the client's consultant archaeologist, CgMs Consulting, and the Derby and Derbyshire Development Control archaeologist(9/2014/0562). Activity was restricted to a small number of ditches and undated tree holes or throws. The linear features correspond well with field boundaries and a trackway seen on the OS map of 1882. An area of geophysical anomalies was shown to be a dump of modern building rubble and plastic the location of which corresponded with a rectangular building visible on the 1882 OS map.
