Working in the wider landscape has resulted in the group being involved on some interesting projects and making some important discoveries.
The group has :
- discovered a large sweep of ritual landscape along a ridge above the Welland valley running from Medbourne to Slawston including Roman settlement and at least eight Bronze Age barrows and a possible Neolithic henge.
- worked on the Story of England with Michael Wood, carrying out a geophysical survey at Kibworth, which revealed extensive Roman and Iron Age activity.
- confirmed the archaeological integrity of an important Bronze Age gold basketware find.
- surveyed the battlefield site at Bosworth.
- worked alongside Leicester University School of Archaeology and Ancient History on the large geophysical survey of the Iron Age hill fort at Burrough on the Hill. This work was undertaken using English Heritage protocols for survey.
- used magnetometry and resistivity to locate the lost medieval chapel of St Morrell, a medieval palce of pilgrimage in Hallaton, this was followed by numerous excavations which have confirmed the age and size of the chapel and a number of skeletons which display deviant burial practices.
The excavations are supervised by Vicki Score from ULAS in her own time.
