Introduction

Llangarren, Wilton Road, Salisbury, Wiltshire (OASIS id: wessexar1-93214)

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned to carry out an archaeological evaluation on land for a proposed development at Llangarren, Wilton Road, Salisbury. No archaeological deposits or features of note were recorded that pre-date the postmedieval period (post-1500 AD). A small assemblage of residual finds were recorded from quarry pit backfill dumps in the north of the Site (Trench 1), which included undiagnostic worked flint knapping waste of probable earlier prehistoric date (4000 - 700 BC). Residual earlier prehistoric finds have been recorded to the north-west of the Site and probably represent 'background' evidence of past human activity within the Nadder Valley.Overall, the potential for Palaeolithic material, derived from the small area of unquarried natural 'brickearth' in the mid-south of the site, is considered to be very low. The potential for archaeological deposits or features of later periods is considered very low, due to the extent (both in depth and area) of 18th - 19th century 'brickearth' quarrying on the Site, although unstratified artefacts derived from localised human activity may be present in the quarry pit backfill deposits.
