Abstract

In April 2019 Oxford Archaeology completed a six trench evaluation on land off Windermere Drive, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. The evaluation demonstrated that parts of the site had been disturbed during the construction of a housing development in the 1990s. It also, however, revealed furrows from ridge and furrow cultivation preserved below a buried topsoil horizon, and depths of mixed redeposited soils reflecting the levelling of the topography in the 1990s. Two small ditches on differing alignments to the furrows were present, and a single small possible Iron Age sherd of pottery was recovered from the fill of one. The ditches may represent earlier field boundaries but they do not appear to be related to any significant levels of activity within the area covered by the evaluation.
