On the 25th of June 2012 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation on
land on the eastern edge of Fenny Compton in Warwickshire. The evaluation
comprised machine excavation of four trenches measuring 20m by 1.6m. No trench exceeded 0.7m in maximum depth with 0.3m being the norm. In all the trenches, a thin layer of turf/topsoil came down directly onto the underlying natural clays.
Other than modern drains, no archaeological features were identified in any of the
trenches. Eighteen sherds of early medieval pottery were recovered from three of the four trenches and two pieces of tile were also recovered. These probably relate
to night soil deposits.
