Introduction

Purton Raw Water Reservoir Archaeological Observation, Purton, Berkeley, Gloucestershire (borderar1-184473)

Border Archaeology carried out observation of engineering groundworks activity at Purton Reservoir Gloucestershire on behalf of Bristol Water in April 2012.

No archaeological finds, features or deposits were revealed during the course of the observation. Notably, the site had been subject to extensive engineering and landscaping works since the 1970s and this has clearly had a significant impact.

It would thus appear to be the case that evidence of previous occupation and landuse had been destroyed by the previous substantial reservoir engineering activities.
