In October 2016 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological excavation for
Orion Heritage, on behalf of Hallam Land Management and Bloor Homes
Consortium, on land north-west of Shottery, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.
This is the second phase of excavation carried out in relation to the development.
Two separate areas were mechanically stripped, both of which uncovered extensive
evidence of ridge and furrow, the characteristic traces of long-term medieval and
post-medieval open field agriculture. Twelve features interpreted as tree-throw holes
were also recorded, possibly representing an earlier episode of tree clearance.
No significant archaeological remains were identified.
