Between the 7th and 25th November 2019 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a 15-trench evaluation on land to the south of Whittington Way, Bishop’s Stortford.
Evidence for prehistoric activity was present across the site, with a small worked flint assemblage, one possible Bronze Age ditch and one Iron Age ditch terminus. Roman cultivation rows on three different alignments were present in the north-western part of the field. Later activity was characterised by an alignment of post holes and trackway dated to the Late Anglo Saxon-early medieval period, along with a modern field boundary ditch that extended across the south-western edge of the site.
