This independent project was engaged in extensive excavation of a roman villa (now completed) and of features in the surrounding landscape including an Anglo-Saxon cemetery. The South Northants District Council has contributed major funding. The finds-processing and data-analysis for this excavation fall within the Local People-Local Past remit (see the results for Heyford 1).


  • P9166085Harpole Roman Villas

CLASP initiated and facilitated a one week excavation of test pits and trenches at Harpole Roman Villa, and the associated finds-processing and data analysis. This small-scale project was funded by the Harpole Parish Council. A full report will be published on this web site in due course. Work is intermittently ongoing at two villa sites in Harpole Parish and the Parish Council continues to fund CLASP activities.

  • MKarchDay12Future projects

CLASP is currently seeking major funding for further Local People-Local Past non-invasive archaeological investigations, initially of Romano-British settlement in the Upper Nene Valley and in the hinterland of Watling Street (the A5 trunk road) between Bannaventa (north of Weedon) and Lactodorum (Towcester). An essential part of this project will be to continue educating and training local volunteers to a level which will enable them to devise and carry out projects of their own, based in their local societies. Another aspect of the project will be to devise diagnostic strategies for settlement identification which can be applied anywhere.
