Abstract

In October 2016 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological excavation for Orion Heritage, on behalf of Hallam Land Management and Bloor Homes Consortium, on land north-west of Shottery, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire. This is the second phase of excavation carried out in relation to the development. Two separate areas were mechanically stripped, both of which uncovered extensive evidence of ridge and furrow, the characteristic traces of long-term medieval and post-medieval open field agriculture. Twelve features interpreted as tree-throw holes were also recorded, possibly representing an earlier episode of tree clearance. No significant archaeological remains were identified.
