Introduction

Land West of Cheltenham Road, Evesham, Worcestershire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-228090)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in October 2014 at land west of Cheltenham Road, Evesham, Worcestershire. Twenty-two trenches were excavated. A field system, consisting of ditches enclosing furrowed fields, was recorded in the south-east of the site. Whilst two of the ditches contained small, abraded sherds of probable Roman pottery, and the alignment of the ditches matched that of a Roman settlement revealed previously to the south-east of the site, other ditches in the same system contained post-medieval artefacts. Therefore, the date of origin of the field system remains in question, although no other Roman features or artefacts were revealed to suggest that Roman settlement per se continued into the proposed development site.
