Husbands Bosworth Causewayed Enclosure



Details of Causewayed Enclosure on Pastscape

A Neolithic causewayed enclosure identified in the summer of 1999 following geophysical survey in the area of a flint scatter near Husbands Bosworth. The site comprises two closely-spaced concentric circuits of interrupted ditch enclosing an area of circa 1.5 hectares. Trial trenching has recovered late Neolithic pottery and flint from the upper levels of the ditches. There is some suggestion of an internal bank, while post holes between the two ditch circuits have been tentatively interpreted as some kind of revetment for the bank.
