In 2021, The Jessop Consultancy undertook a programme of archaeological recording at at Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire. Woburn Abbey is a Grade I listed building located within a Grade I registered park and garden . The extant buildings date to the second half of the 18th century, but were constructed over the remains of a former abbey, founded c.1145. During archaeological monitoring of external groundworks, a small assemblage of animal bone was recovered, along with a number of human burials. This material was analysed in the University of Sheffield's Human Osteology and Zooarchaeology laboratories, by experts working for ARRaS.
