Investigations of the Archaeological Landscape at MSA A1/A507, Radwell, Hertfordshire: Phase 2 Excavations
Excavations at MSA A1/A507 were undertaken during January and February 2000. These uncovered, in areas A and B, evidence for marginal Late Bronze Age activity dating to around 800 BC in the form of postholes, pits and a segmented boundary ditch. These discoveries augmented work previously undertaken which had revealed a Late Bronze Age pit alignment (also representing a boundary) and other ephemeral settlement activity. These may represent an attempt by the local people to enforce a claim upon the land and to form stronger social bonds. Activity of this type is probably indicative of the land and population pressures thought to have become more intense during this period.
