Oxford Archaeology South (OAS), was commissioned by CgMs Consulting Ltd, on
behalf of Miller Homes (East Midlands) Ltd, to undertake an evaluation of land at
Hugglescote, Leicestershire, NGR SK 4180 1350. The work was carried out in
advance of a planning application for residential development. The work was
undertaken between 21st - 28th September 2011.
The evaluation revealed remains indicating the presence of at least two Bronze Age
burnt mound deposits with associated discrete features infilled with material
consistent with fuel debris. No further prehistoric activity was revealed by the
Furrows and field boundaries were recorded and probably date to the Medieval to
Early Post-medieval period. These are part of the ridge and furrow landscape, which
formed part of the agricultural systems associated with the villages of Hugglescote
and Snibston and the manor at Donington le Heath
