Proposals for the upgrading of the A15 between Glinton and Werrington (TF 159038-TF 154053) and re-alignment has led to the need for an archaeological evaluation.

The construction of the new road, with its associated slip roads, will involve the removal of large amounts of topsoil, affecting any archaeology present.

Several stages of archaeological analysis were, therefore, carried out, which included documentary research, cartographic study, field walking and geophysical survey. Although limited archaeological evidence was found in the SMR, hardly any artefacts were found during field walking, nor were very many features detected during the geophysical survey.

Following the desktop survey, an archaeological evaluation was carried out in two stages in September and November 1994. The lack of archaeological evidence in most of the fields was striking. The only archaeological features found were in Field 1 and 2, and the few artefacts provided little dating evidence.
