Synopsis: Excavations in advance of the construction of Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport uncovered a complex settlement and farming landscape spanning later Neolithic to Saxon periods. Fragments of Neolithic cursus and a few other structures and pits attest to Neolithic activity before and associated with the Stanwell Cursus complex. By around 1700 BC, the landscape had been apportioned and divided into field systems traversed by double-ditched trackways and incorporating small farmsteads. There seems to have been little activity in the Iron Age until the emergence of a nucleated settlement of roundhouses, four-post structures and livestock enclosures in the Middle Iron Age. This settlement continued in use through to the end of the Roman period, with various modifications and realignments of the accompanying field systems. The remains of an early Saxon settlement were revealed to the north-west of this earlier site and, after a period of apparent abandonment, new fields and stock enclosures were established in the mid-Saxon period; the area remaining as farmland into the 20th century.

Review: The exercise, conducted with such informative and innovative reports, would offer stimulating insights into how archaeology works, with a fascinating historical narrative on the side. If that sounds ideal for student teaching, the quality of editing, writing and illustration mean anyone with a basic archaeological vocabulary could also enjoy the journey.' (Mike Pitts British Archaeology, March/April 2011)

What emerges is a gripping and well-told story of the evolution of a relatively ordinary landscape over the millennia separating the Mesolithic era from our own, a tale that is brought to life by some excellent artists reconstruction drawings of the landscape at key moments in the past.' (Christopher Catling SALON - The Society of Antiquaries Online Newsletter, No. 256, 6 June 2011)
