Abstract

Between the 15th and 16th December 2020, Oxford Archaeology East carried out a trial trench evaluation at the site of a proposed residential development on land at Hill Farm, Fowlmere Road, Foxton (TL 41625 48028). Three trenches were excavated within the development area which revealed a small concentration of archaeological features in the northern part of the site. Two parallel ditches broadly correspond with features observed in previous evaluation work to the south of the site which uncovered Iron Age ditches considered to be part of an agricultural hinterland. A large natural solution hollow was also uncovered in the northern part of the site, as well as two undated gullies and a post hole.
