Archaeology of Stanton on the Wolds
As far as your editor is aware there have been no professional archaeological excavations carried out in the village. There was one very excellent amateur dig that found evidence of Neolithic habitation along Browns Lane, (please click on Pre-history below). The village history is thus highly dependent on written records together with what evidence is available from casual ‘finds’. Since the village history book (Ref 1) was published by the Stanton on the Wolds Parish Council in 2006, new casual finds have been made which were recorded with the Regional Finds Liaison Officer for the East Midlands and some of them have been written up for the bi-monthly Stanton on the Wolds Parish Newsletters (Refs . 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). Continuing research has also added details of past finds. The archaeology of the village has been divided into five groups or time periods. Photographs or drawings have been included of the artefacts allocated to each group. Please click on a time period below:-
