Introduction

Rock Cottage, Chilmark, Wiltshire (OASIS ID: wessexar1-98742)

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by WGDP Ltd, on behalf of Johan Denekamp, to undertake an archaeological field evaluation ahead of development at Rock Cottage, Chilmark, Wiltshire, located at National Grid Reference (NGR) ST 96929 32025. Previous archaeological works to the north-east and east of the site had identified Romano-British burials and settlement activity. The extent and layout of the burials has not been defined and there was potential for human remains within the site. The evaluation, therefore, set out to ascertain the impact of the proposed development on any archaeological remains within the site. The evaluation comprised the excavation of a single trial trench within the area of a proposed single storey building with subterranean undercroft parking. The trial trench was machine excavated to the top of the natural geology. An undated linear ditch was recorded within the evaluation trench. The fieldwork was undertaken on the 4th of April 2011.
