Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by DW Parsons to carry out an archaeological evaluation on land at 7 Nelson Square, Levens, Cumbria (SD 4852 8569) in December 2002 prior to a residential development. The work revealed a
crouched inhumation of potential prehistoric date. Following discussions with Cumbria County Council Archaeological Service a fuller programme of excavation was agreed to establish the extent and character of the cemetery. The excavation was undertaken in July 2003.
The excavation area measured approximately 140m2 and was found to contain four further crouched inhumations, along with several late post-medieval features. The post�medieval features were observed to contain nineteenth to twentieth century material.
