Introduction

Land North of Vines Lane, Droitwich, Worcestershire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-262206)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in August 2016 on land north of Vines Lane, Droitwich, Worcestershire. Eight trenches were excavated. Evidence for a Roman rampart and ditch, as well as for contemporary cobbled surfaces and ditches was identified. The Roman activity is associated with the previously identified Roman settlement, Bays Meadow Scheduled Monument, immediately to the north. In addition, a possible late medieval/post-medieval ditch and evidence for modern truncation and landscaping was identified.
