Introduction

Wainlode Lane, Norton, Gloucestershire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-289350)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology between the end of January and the beginning of February 2017 on land at Wainlode Lane, Norton, Gloucestershire.

A total of five trenches were excavated. Ditches and pits, containing artefacts ranging in date from the late prehistoric and medieval periods, were identified in the northern and central areas of the site. It is possible that the prehistoric and Roman pottery was intrusive. Remains of post-medieval earthworks and field boundaries were recorded across the site. The concentration of ditches within the northern end of the site seems to correlate with a small enclosure and other boundary ditches depicted on the 1807 Inclosure map, which could represent a moated site of medieval date.
