Irish studies has blossomed as a discipline over time. This flowering took root with the emergence in the 1960s and 1970s of “area studies”, or area-based programmes, which emphasised that knowledge of the literature, culture, history and diversity that shape and mould various cultures and disciplines should form an essential ingredient of university courses. Hence, French studies, peace studies, women’s studies, European studies, and postcolonial studies, to cite but a few examples, all came to the fore and proposed a broader menu for students’ delectation than had previously been the norm.
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in May 2017 by University of Leicester Archaeological Services on behalf of Broughton Hall Fencing on land at Mill Lane, Gilmorton, Leicestershire, in advance of proposed residential development. The fieldwork represented a second phase of investigation following an initial phase of archaeological fieldwork in January 2016 and arising from revisions to the original scheme in order to incorporate additional land. The archaeological evaluation provided limited evidence for medieval archaeological cultivation in the form of plough furrows. No other archaeological evidence was present.
