Published by Wessex Archaeology
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Channel 4’s ‘Time Team’ within Bedford Purlieus Wood, Thornhaugh, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire (NGR 504525 299984) to investigate a series of Roman remains first identified at the beginning of the 19th century. The site is located in an area rich in Roman archaeology, lying to the west of the town of Durobrivae (modern Water Newton), and with numerous sites and find spots of Roman date in the vicinity.
In 2005 and 2007 Northamptonshire Archaeology (NA) carried out an earthwork survey and evaluation within the wood which identified a north-south range of buildings bordering the western side of a possible courtyard enclosed on the northern side by an earthen bank. The survey also identified a series of large quarry pits immediately to the west of the north-south range and a second enclosure some 130m further west. A LiDAR survey of the Site by the Forestry Commission, following on from NA’s work, revealed an extensive complex of remains and quarry pits.
