There are archaeological investigation works proposed to be undertaken on Parcels R20 and R25. This work is required in advance of construction being undertaken on these parcels.
The works are due to start on 27th January and will consist of stripping the top soil (which will remain on the site) and then digging with hand tools, however the dig may include mechanical diggers if deeper excavations are required. The investigation will be led by archaeologists who will investigate whether there are items or other findings of historic interest within the parcels. The investigations are expected to take between 6 and 8 weeks depending on the findings.
The works are being undertaken in accordance with the archaeological brief produced by the County Archaeological Advisor at Northamptonshire County Council and the work is subject to the approval of Northamptonshire County Council.
