Between 17/02/15 to 19/02/15, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) carried out an archaeological evaluation on land off Grantham Road, Waddington (SK 980 638). A total of 6 trenches were excavated, targeting anomalies identified by a geophysical survey. Archaeological features were recorded in three of the six trenches. A ring ditch identified by the geophysics was located within Trenches 1 and 2, along with a posthole and boundary ditch. Two boundary ditches and a pit were located in Trench 4. All other trenches contained only geological features. The field system seen in the geophysics was located in Trench 1, but not in the other trenches, although Trench 4 had features almost on the anticipated field system alignment.
The only find recovered was a single heavily abraded worked flint from the topsoil on site. No finds were recovered from the features and environmental samples taken were devoid of any ecofactual remains.
