Abstract

SUMMARY An evaluation in 2014 and subsequent excavation in 2015 on land south of the High Street, Drayton revealed late Saxon ditches that may form part of a trackway, a medieval field system, and post-medieval boundary ditches. The latest evidence dates to the nineteenth century and relates to ancillary buildings belonging to Whitehorn’s Farm. Postholes and pits and a midden deposit also uncovered are likely to relate to the medieval settlement, though the features were generally poorly dated.
