Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

An archaeological evaluation was carried out in March and April 2007 by University of Leicester Archaeological Services on land at the former Bristol Street Motors, Alfreton Road, Derby, in advance of housing construction by George Wimpey Ltd. Furrows containing a large quantity of residual Roman pottery, and a small amount of Medieval pottery, was found in the south of the site; this is interpreted as medieval ridge and furrow. Gullies and ditches on the same alignment were found in trenches on the north side of the site; they are assumed to be of similar age. (1)
