Abstract

An investigation was undertaken by a team from Cambridge Archaeological Unit at Broom Quarry, Bedfordshire (centred NGR 517587 244093) in December 2004 and March 2005. The work was commissioned by Tarmac Southern Ltd in advance of gravel extraction (Phase 9b). It comprised an evaluation by trial trenching across the entire extraction area (12.5ha) followed by open area excavation (c.0.6ha). These identified a very sparse scatter of Neolithic pits and tree-throws, a Bronze Age ring ditch and cremation cemetery, two main concentrations of later Bronze Age settlement including pits, postholes, linear ditches and a roundhouse, and Romano- British and later ditches.
