Abstract

Between 18th and 22nd March 2019, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) carried out a twenty trench archaeological evaluation on Land North of Clapham, Water Treatment Works, Clapham Road, Bedfordshire (TL 03718 51865). There was a low density of archaeological features and those present were limited to the northern half of the site. The evaluation did uncover limited evidence of Middle to Late Iron Age activity, mainly consisting of boundary and drainage ditches. On the eastern edge of the site, a wide shallow hollow was present with a metalled surface in the base. Trench 10 contained a large gravel extraction pit which probably dates from the late medieval or post-medieval period.
