Abstract :
A watching brief and small-scale excavations were undertaken during the initial stages of a new sewerage scheme at Weston Underwood. Evidence was recovered for a probable prehistoric cremation, and for settlement during the Roman, Saxon and medieval periods. This activity was recorded in various locations around the eastern side of the village, including an area close to a medieval moated site. A high degree of settlement continuity over the past two millennia is implied by these results. A possible nucleus of late Saxon occupation in the vicinity of the present church is suggested. Archaeological finds are noted. ;
