Introduction

Land at Falmouth, Cornwall Archaeological Evaluation (cotswold2-315797)

In October 2017, Cotswold Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation of land at Falmouth, Cornwall.

The evaluation identified a series of ditches, pits and postholes in the central, southern and western areas of the site. Artefactual material was scarce and could not generally be closely dated, but a one trench contained a concentration of pits/postholes and a possible hearth which have tentatively been interpreted as the remains of one or more prehistoric roundhouses. Also recorded were a series of late post-medieval/modern boundary/drainage ditches. The eastern part of the site was found to contain extensive modern made ground deposits.
