Hanslope, Northamptonshire by Wessex Archaeology
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Videotext Communications Ltd to undertake a programme of archaeological recording and post-excavation work on an archaeological evaluation undertaken by Channel 4’s ‘Time Team’ at Oliver’s Meadow, Gordon’s Lodge Farm, Hanslope, nr Grafton Regis, Northamptonshire, centred on NGR 477140 248100. Gordon’s Lodge Farm lies approximately 3km to the west of the village of Hanslope, on the road between Hanslope and Grafton Regis.Since 1998 the field known as Oliver’s Meadow has been subject to archaeological investigation by the Gordon’s Lodge Archaeological Field School (GLAFS). This work has identified two large sub circular enclosures close to the south eastern edge of the field, one of which is the subject of an ongoing excavation. The preliminary results from this indicate that the enclosure contains at least one building, with stone footings, as well as areas of industrial activity, dating from the 11th to early 13th century.
