In July 2018 Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by CgMs Heritage to undertake an archaeological evaluation at Kingstand Farm in Leicester Forest East, Leicestershire. The site comprises c 7.94 hectares of land at the location
of a proposed new housing development. The evaluation involved the excavation of 25 trenches, representing a 3% sample of the site.
The results of the evaluation confirmed that areas of the site were crossed by ridge and furrow, and modern features relating to the former golf course were found in the western part of the site. The only archaeological features were in
the south-eastern corner of the site, comprising a ditch and two possible pits containing middle Iron Age to early Roman pottery with evidence for metalworking and possibly pottery production. This area appears to represent the periphery of an area of archaeological activity that extends beyond the
boundary of the site.
