Introduction

Land at Park Road, Blockley, Gloucestershire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-284224)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in April 2017 on land at Park Road, Blockley, Gloucestershire. A total of five trenches was excavated.

A posthole containing a quantity of possible Iron Age pottery was identified in the central-northern part of the site. A further similar posthole and three pits were identified in close proximity to this feature and may be broadly contemporary.

A large shallow feature of indeterminate function, containing a single sherd of late prehistoric pottery, was identified in the south-western part of the site.

Two ditches, one of which contained a heavily abraded sherd of probable 5th to 8th-century pottery and a quantity of animal bone, were identified in the south-western part of the site. The function of these ditches remains unclear, although it is possible that they relate to agricultural land management, drainage or division.
