    Abstract

    This article reports on the excavation at Threefords, Milfield, Northumberland, of an early fourth millennium Neolithic building and midden, possibly within a ditched enclosure. Associated with these remains were a large deposit of Carinated Bowl pottery, a Group VI axehead of Langdale Tuff, and environmental material that included evidence for cereal cultivation and timber species. Later activity included shallow linear ditches, representing agricultural land division, and rig and furrow ploughing.
