Overview

The survey was part of a larger project (Stage 3A of the Forest of Dean Archaeological Survey) to address deficiencies in knowledge of the archaeology of the Forest of Dean, particularly within the large areas of woodland, and to contribute towards the management of the heritage resource especially in Forestry Commission land.
