Abstract
Excavations were undertaken at a multi-vallate enclosure onWoodend Farm by GUARD in the late summer of 1994 in advance of the construction of the M6 motorway extension. Geophysical survey and excavation revealed a third bank beyond the two upstanding banks. Within the interior, seven separate blocks of superimposed buildings were observed, together with an eighth, single-phase structure interpreted as an animal pen. Artefacts were few, consisting of worked stones and querns, while the radiocarbon dates indicated occupation substantially in the Romano-British period, although the enclosure was built in the pre-Roman Iron Age. A return was made toWoodend in 1997 during the topsoil operations for the construction work and three further structures were recorded.
