Abstract

The Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted a fieldwalking survey and an archaeological evaluation on 1.18ha of land at Butterfield Green, Luton, Bedfordshire (TL 1096/2506). This was in advance of a proposed industrial development. The evaluation revealed Iron Age and undated features including several ditches of various sizes in six of the ten trenches. Post holes and a pit were also observed in Trench 5, while a single post hole was seen in Trench 2. One ditch in Trench 4 produced most of the pottery from the site, although sherds were recovered from a total of 8 contexts. All of the pottery recovered from features has been spot-dated to the early to middle Iron Age. Worked and burnt flint was also recovered from a number of features as well as the plough soil.
