Archaeological Evaluation: Land North of Broom Grange, Near Broom, Bedfordshire
Archaeological evaluation by trial trenching was undertaken by a team from Cambridge Archaeological Unit on 55h of land north of Broom Grange, Bedfordshire (TL 1809 4360) in November and December 2003. This followed initial investigations by aerial photographic and geophysical survey and aimed to determine presence, absence, date, extent, state of preservation and significance of any subsoil archaeological features. The evaluation was commissioned by Tarmac Southern Ltd at the request of the Bedfordshire County Archaeological Officer as part of an Environmental Impact Assessment. Seven concentrations of archaeology were identified (Sites 1-7), dating from the Neolithic to the Saxon period.
