During September and October 2019 Oxford Archaeology undertook a trial
trench evaluation at The Grange, Cotham Lane, Hawton, Nottinghamshire,
ahead of the submission of planning permission related to the use of parts of
the site for a solar farm.
A series of geophysical surveys and the trial trenching identified three main
concentrations of archaeology with differing potential sensitivities with regard
to development impacts. Area A within the south of the site contains a dense
and significant array of archaeological remains dating from the early Iron Age
through to the late Roman period, though activity was most intense in the
later Iron Age and early Roman period. These included numerous ditched
enclosures, discrete pits and postholes and a probable cremation burial. The
limited work undertaken during the evaluation has not allowed these remains
to be well understood.
Area B comprises the periphery of the settlement containing a less dense array
of archaeological remains thought to be mainly of Roman date, and
comprising four trackways defined by parallel double ditches and some more
isolated ditches and discrete features.
Area C in the northern part of the site contained a series of field boundary
ditches which largely remain undated, and are likely to have been sited some
distance from any focus of settlement.
