Findspot - Mesolithic flints & Medieval ridge & furrow

Description of this historic site

An area of Medieval ridge and furrow cultivation was observed during archaeological work in the vicinity of Rugby Cement Works. Mesolithic flint artefacts were also recovered from the site.

Notes about this historic site

1 An archaeological observation at Rugby Cement Works, Lodge Farm, Long Lawford, adjacent to a later Prehistoric or Roman settlement cropmark, revealed a possible former field boundary together with evidence of a Medieval ridge and furrow agricultural field system. A scatter of flint from the topsoil of the observed area and over the cropmark suggested some Mesolithic activity in the general area.
