In March 2019 Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Pegasus Group
on behalf of Gladman Developments Ltd to undertake a trial trench evaluation
at Braybrooke Road, Desborough, Northamptonshire. The evaluation
consisted of 45 trenches arranged across the site, following a geophysical
survey. The evaluation revealed an absence of archaeological features in the
majority of the site, although a hollow-way, dated by a small quantity of late
Iron Age pottery, and eight linear ditches that appeared to form a field or
enclosure system were discovered in the central and eastern part of the
western field. Five undated pits were also discovered in this area. The putative
field system was not dated by any artefactual remains, although one of the
ditches truncated the upper fill of the hollow-way and was, in turn, overlain
by ridge and furrow cultivation.
