Roger Kipling has recently completed a 71 trench evaluation of two areas to the east and west of Broughton Way at Broughton Astley, Leicestershire. As anticipated by a previously undertaken geophysical survey, a small ditched enclosure of Iron Age date was located in the central eastern area. Its fourth (eastern) side was absent, likely due to plough erosion. There were indications of a single hornwork entrance positioned midway along the southern side. The survey suggested the presence of several internal features including post-holes and gullies, the latter perhaps representing internal subdivisions.
