Abstract

A small excavation, following on from a previous evaluation (Gilmour 2014), was carried out at Innisfree, Mill Lane, Hemmingford Grey, during February 2014. The works uncovered a series of boundary or drainage ditches across the footprints of the two houses. An assemblage of Late Iron Age and Early Roman pottery was recovered from the ditches, which relate to a substantial cropmark complex to the east of the development. It is clear from the pottery recovered that the ditches were either part of or near to a low status settlement or farmstead.
