An archaeological evaluation at Sparrow Lodge, Wicken, Northamptonshire
was commissioned by RPS Group on behalf of Elgin Energy. The evaluation
revealed a series of archaeological features, most of which conformed to
anomalies identified via cropmark and geophysical survey of the area. There
were two main periods represented by Iron Age and medieval settlement
activity, while there was also a number of undated features present. The Iron
Age activity included a concentration in Field 5 that was previously identified
through survey and proved to represent a well-preserved series of enclosures,
ring ditches and gullies as well as a trackway with a mettled surface. Medieval
activity included pits, ditches and a pond feature that lay either side of a
wooded enclosure. Very late or post-medieval ridge and furrow was present
in numerous trenches across every field. Artefactual material largely
compromised pottery, animal bone, and some CBM, with a limited
background-scatter of flint.
