Between the 10th and 20th of October 2017, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) conducted an archaeological evaluation at land attached to Glebe Farm, north of Gidding Road, Sawtry, Cambridgeshire (centred TL 16260 83668). Previous archaeological work carried out to the south and west of the site have identified enclosures and field systems dating to the later Iron Age and Early Roman periods.
A total of 10 evaluation trenches totalling 500 linear metres were excavated, targeting geophysical anomalies across the site. Eight of the trenches contained archaeological features, the majority of which were ditches and pits relating to a series of Late Iron Age and Early Roman enclosures.
In general, the evaluation results correspond well with the anomalies suggested on the geophysical survey. This evidence, combined with features identified by archaeological investigations to the south of Gidding Road, indicates the presence of extensive later Iron Age and Early Roman activity in this location, in the form of ‘ladder settlement enclosures’.
