Summary:
Bronze Age activity, Freeman Land, Langtoft

Location:
LANGTOFT, SOUTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
PRN 37115
Excavations undertaken during July and August 2007 revealed an area of Bronze Age activity at Freeman's Land, Langtoft. Twelve linear features probably forming part of a middle Bronze Age field system were revealed. Two of the features contained middle Bronze Age pottery and one contained a barbed and tanged arrowhead. A series of semicircular features possibly forming an animal enclosure were also excavated. One of these also contained middle Bronze Age pottery. A number of pits and wells containing Bronze Age pottery and worked wood were found. One pit held an upright stake and was interpreted as a flax retting pit. Another large pit contained a large number of middle Bronze Age pottery sherds and a crouched inhumation. A small dog skeleton was buried in association with the inhumation and two toggles had been placed on either side of the inhumation's neck. A series of post holes and four tree throws contained charcoal, bone and burnt clay. Three ring ditches, possible evidence of barrows, were uncovered. A fragment of Deverel-Rimbury pottery was found in one of the ditches. To the north of the ring ditches were two distinct clusters of burials consisting of twelve cremations. A watering hole containing middle Bronze Age pottery, numerous cattle bones, a timber revetment and middle Iron Age pottery was also excavated. {1}{2}
