Introduction

45 Military Road, Heddon-on-the-Wall, Northumberland. Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: aagarcha1-297460)

AAG Archaeology were commissioned by to undertake an archaeological watching brief at 45 Military Road, Heddon-on-the-Wall, Northumberland, NE15 0HA (NZ1290467096). The watching brief did not return any definite archaeological features or deposits. There may be some intrusive industrial residue in the subsoil, industrial refuse has previously been found dumped in the Vallum opposite this stretch of Military Road during the early medieval, albeit closer to the village.

The rock content of the subsoil and fill of the water connection increased near the road, but discussions about morphology aside, there is no way of knowing if these have been used in construction of Hadrian's Wall, the Military Road or the garden of 45 Military Road.
