Abstract

Between the 21st and 28th of October 2010 Oxford Archaeology East were commissioned by CgMs Consulting to undertake a strip, map and record investigation on land at Ivy Farm, Royston, Hertfordshire (TL 34525 40710). The investigation revealed a late medieval trackway aligned east to west in the south-eastern corner of the development area, a small post medieval ditch with a north-north-west to south-south-east orientation and numerous post medieval and modern small pits/post holes were also recorded. These lay mostly to the south of the trackway and may be associated with the planting of trees or shrubs parallel to the road. The trackway is likely to be a continuation of that recorded during evaluation of the site by Northamptonshire Archaeology in 2009 where medieval and post-medieval finds were also recovered. OA East returned in July 2011 after the ground clearance works to conduct a Watching Brief. No further archaeological features were revealed.
