Abstract

Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned to undertake an archaeological evaluation by Peter Norris prior to the proposed development of land at Priory Farm, Priory Lane, Hornby (SD 5785 6905); the site lies at the end of Priory Lane and to the north-west of the village of Hornby. The work was undertaken on 30th May and 31st May 2002, and consisted of the excavation of three 15m long trenches. The trenches were positioned in order to trace any occupation across the area affected by the groundworks. No archaeological features were detected in any of the trenches, but a small assemblage of worked flint and chert, of tentative Late Mesolithic/Early Neolithic date, together with two joining heavily abraded sherds of Roman pottery, was recovered from the subsoil in the northern part of Trench 1.
