Complex Boundary Features in the Late Prehistoric Landscape at Picket Twenty, Andover
A small area of strip-map-and-record excavation at Picket Twenty, Andover, revealed a complex of possibly associated features along a section of a double-ditched boundary, including two parallel lines of small but closely spaced post-holes, and a shallow arc of oval pits or short ditch segments. These occurred at the point where a slight kink in the boundary was marked by staggered break in the two parallel ditches, one of the ditch terminals being marked by a pit or large post- hole. The only dating evidence was a small assemblage of very fragmented and abraded sherds, with a broad date range of Late Bronze Age to Middle Iron Age. While the function and meaning of these features are unclear, they may have been related to the control of movement both along this boundary, and across it between different zones in the landscape, as well as to historic and current landuse and ownership.
