Between the 16th and the 20th of February 2015 Oxford Archaeology East excavated five trenches totalling on land associated with proposed redevelopment at the JMI School ST Albans.
During the evaluation a tree bowl containing a residual neolithic flint flake and three small ditches dating to the Iron Age, one of which contained a moderate amount of early Iron Age pottery were uncovered. Following on from this an excavation which took place between 30th of March and the 3rd of April 2015 on an area adjacent to Trench 4, revealed a group of small post holes and the continuation of an early Iron Age field boundary, initially found during the evaluation.
