Introduction

Homestead, Halfkey Road, Malvern, Worcestershire. Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: borderar1-298636)

Border Archaeology Ltd was commissioned by Alex Young of Tower Davies Ltd on behalf of Cardwell Hill Developments to carry out a programme of Archaeological Observation in connection with the excavation of foundations for a development comprising four houses and associated garages at Half Key Road Malvern Worcestershire WR14 1UL. The site lies close to an area known for the manufacture of Romano-British Severn Valley Ware (SVW), with kiln wasters discovered at No. 11 Half Key Road and further features possibly associated with Romano-British pottery production identified to the west of the development site. No features of archaeological significance were encountered during the course of the groundworks. The majority of the site showed evidence for disturbance resulting from recent horticultural activity. However, whilst allowing for later disturbance, the fact that only two, much-abraded sherds of SVW were recovered suggests the site lay at a distance from the kilns.
