Area of Middle-Late Iron Age Pits and L-shaped ditch uncovered in advance of construction of the Barford Bypass
Area of Middle-Late Iron Age Pits and L-shaped ditch from trial trenching and area excavation (Area 'A') uncovered from excavation in advance of the construction of the Barford Bypass.
1 Three distinct groups of pits and an L-shaped ditch were located in and around Area A dating to the Middle-Late Iron Age.
One of the pits (pit 32) contained a series of stakeholes and charred processed barley that gave a radiocarbon date of 360-50 Cal BC (SUERC-24746).
The L-shaped ditch contained a fragment of human bone which gave a radiocarbon date of 390-200 Cal BC (SUERC-24967) and contained fill from later periods (Romano-British and Anglo-Saxon).
