Between 1/2/14 and 21/1/15 Oxford Archaeology East undertook an archaeological excavation on the proposed site of a commercial unit at Great Haddon, Peterborough (TL 1481 9415). This followed a trenching evaluation in 2006 and a
geophysical survey in 2014. The earliest phase of occupation identified was a Middle Iron Age open settlement, comprising two roundhouses, a stock enclosure and associated pits and postholes. Formalisation of this settlement occurred at some point in the Middle Iron Age when a complex enclosure was dug surrounding a roundhouse and associated occupation features. A later phase of remodelling occurred before the settlement was abandoned during the Late Iron Age.
Overall the stratigraphic, artefactual and environmental data recovered from this site have a moderate potential to address a number of local and regional research themes.
