Introduction

St Bartholomew Church, Lower Cam, Gloucestershire. Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: urbanarc1-312260)

On 2-3rd August and 19-20th October 2017 Urban Archaeology carried out an archaeological watching brief on behalf of the Parochial Church Council of Lower Cam, at the church of St Bartholomew, Lower Cam, Gloucestershire, during the excavation of a service trench and the relaying of a stone slab path.

The watching brief identified disturbed ground close to the south wall of the church, and extending up to the edge of the path. This is probably related to the excavation of graves within the churchyard.

The planned works successfully avoided any damage to grave markers and the excavations were kept to a minimum depth which meant that no burials were disturbed during the works. A single human bone was recovered from made ground and was reburied on site.

The results of the watching brief have met the aims of ensuring that an adequate archaeological record has been made of the groundworks. The results of the watching brief are of local significance and no further work is recommended.
