Manor Farm, Old Wolverton, Milton Keynes. Phase 1
A strip, map and sample exercise was undertaken by Cambridge Archaeological Unit at Manor Farm, Old Wolverton, Milton Keynes between July 2007 and March 2008 (SP 808 422). The work was carried out in advance of mineral extraction. The mineral was overlain by c. 2m alluvial deposits, archaeological activity was exposed sealed beneath, within and overlying the alluvial deposits. Activity sealed beneath the alluvial dates to the Mesolithic/Neolithic, ditches/channels cutting the alluvial were post medieval, whilst Saxon dates were obtained from posts driven through the mid/upper alluvial layers. Several undated features, linears and post holes/pits were identified within the mid/lower alluvial deposits.
