Between December 2014 and January 2015 Oxford Archaeology East undertook an archaeological excavation on the proposed site of a commercial unit at Great Haddon, Peterborough (TL 1481 9415). This followed a trenching evaluation in 2006 and a geophysical survey in 2014.
The earliest phase of occupation identified was a Middle Iron Age open settlement, comprising two roundhouses and associated pits and post holes. Formalisation of this settlement occurred at some point in the Middle Iron Age when a complex enclosure was dug surrounding a roundhouse and associated occupation features. A later phase of remodelling of the enclosures occurred before the settlement was abandoned during the Late Iron Age.
