Between the 10th and 17th December 2013 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an excavation on land to the west of Long Buckby, Northamptonshire in advance of residential development. An Early Roman farmed landscape was found along with evidence for the presence of settlement nearby (possibly to the west of the site). At least two phases of activity were identified with the majority of the features dated to the mid/late 1st century AD to early 2nd century AD and a single ditch possibly continuing into the second half of the 2nd century AD. Features included ditches, pits, a possible shelter and a possible oven or cooking pit that indicate transient habitation.
