Introduction

Over Farm, Highnam, Gloucestershire, Magnetometer Survey Report (OASIS ID: archaeol20-277571)

Detailed magnetometry was carried out by Archaeological Surveys Ltd within a single arable field at Over Farm, Highnam in Gloucestershire, ahead of a potential solar farm development. The survey located a number of small groups of positive linear and discrete responses, with one, in the northern part of the site, appearing to be associated with magnetic debris and in the vicinity of removed field boundaries. The response indicates that magnetically enhanced material is incorporated into possible cut features, or a possible association with burning or industrial activity. Other groups of anomalies are indistinct and lack a coherent morphology. There is also evidence for ridge and furrow, formerly mapped field boundaries and possible land drainage.
