Testing on a green-field site at Boherash, on the northern edge of the modern village of Glanworth, found that the site was bisected by an east-west ditch of unknown date. No archaeological features were found north of that ditch, but a concentration of features was found to the south including ditches, a hearth, stone foundations, a metalled surface and other unidentified features, all assumed to be remnants of previous settlement in the area.
Evidence for medieval occupation was found in excavations a short distance to the south in 2004 (see 2004:0272), including a ditch running north-south. It is tentatively suggested that that north-south ditch may have intersected with the east-west ditch in these test trenches, beyond the limits of the test area, and that together they mark the eastern and northern boundaries of the medieval borough of Glanworth.
