In February 2020, Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological evaluation
for Pauley Construction, on behalf of Milton Keynes Council, at the proposed
location of a residential development at Broughton Manor School, Broughton,
Milton Keynes. The site is centered on SP 89985 39615. A total of three
trenches were excavated, one targeted on probable features identified from
previous phases of excavation directly south of the site.
The trenches revealed two ditches and a pit, all of which were undated and
clearly heavily truncated. The ditches could not be related by their position or
alignment to previous phases of work. The revealed features were overlain by
a series of linear features filled by subsoil which are interpreted as planting
rows of relatively recent date. A deposit of Victorian domestic waste overlay
the planting rows within Trench 1, and contained some ceramics of note.
