Introduction

Area 13 and Area 5, Larkhill Camp, Larkhill, Wiltshire (OASIS ID: wessexar1-92176)

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Aspire Defence Capital Works (the Client) to undertake an archaeological watching brief during development works at Area 13 (LACG13) and Area 5 (LADG05), Larkhill Camp, Larkhill, Wiltshire, centred on National Grid Reference SU 1340 4490 (hereafter, the Site). The fieldwork comprised the topsoil and subsoil strip of a car park and an access road in Area 13 and the excavation of a trench within the footprint of building LA064 in Area 5. Only features of demonstrable modern date were identified during the watching brief. Severe modern disturbance was observed truncating the natural deposits in the southernmost part of the car park and along part of the access road. An assemblage of residual worked flint, of possibly Bronze Age date, was identified within both the topsoil and modern features and is indicative of the known background level of prehistoric activity in the area.
