Here is a link to an article written by Andree Bagley of Hathern History Society in June 2020 which describes agricultural practices up to the Saxon period in England and the East Midlands. These practices led to the system of open fields which were only replaced in Hathern by the enclosure of land in 1778

Andree has also provided the following four examples of archaeological finds from in and near to the village.

mesolithic flint

iron age pottery

roman colour coat

chilvers coton ware
