Introduction

Fragments of a lowland landscape: Archaeological Investigations at Old Park Farm, Pinhoe, 2009-2014

A programme of archaeological investigation, including geophysical survey, trial trenching and excavation, was undertaken between 2009 and 2014 in advance of development at Old Park Farm, Pinhoe. Scattered prehistoric, Roman, medieval and later features were found over 7.4 ha of the 19.7 ha development site. Dating evidence was sparse, but earlier prehistoric activity was represented by flintwork, particularly in the eastern part of the site. A few pits contained evidence of probable Middle Bronze Age occupation. In the north-western area, part of what appears to have been an oval double-ditched enclosure was probably of later Iron Age date, running into the Roman period. There were Roman ditches in the southcentral area, although the probable focus of Roman settlement was taken out of the development. Medieval pottery came from ditches in the same area as the Roman ones, and there was more widespread post-medieval activity in the form of ditched enclosures probably relating to Old Park Farm.
