Abstract:
A watching brief was carried out on 45% of ground-breaking works on the site. This included where the new access roads passed close to or through three sites identified from the desk-based assessment and field reconnaissance survey. No features or deposits of archaeological significance were recorded in two of the areas, but two ditches were identified below and within a rectangular enclosure. The first ditch was aligned NW to SE, cutting the natural subsoil. It was 1.1m wide, 0.28m deep with steeply sloping sides and an irregular base. It was filled with damp peat, similar to the topsoil material in this area. This ditch corresponded with the position of the ditched enclosure remains identified from aerial photographs and fieldwalking. A second ditch lay 3m to the NE of the first ditch. It was aligned N to S and measured 1.08m wide and 0.19m deep with shallow sloping sides and a curved base. It was filled with a moderately compacted grey clay with more than 50% inclusions of small angular pebbles. The function of this ditch was not ascertained, but it probably represents the remains of a feature associated with the rest of the enclosure. A trench was excavated across the line of a track recorded in the DBA and field-walking. It appeared as a sunken track with sloping sides, up to 0.7m deep in places, and was approximately 8m wide from top of bank to top of bank. Excavation revealed a 0.08m deep, 4.5m wide deposit of mid to light brown loamy sand with 50% inclusions of pebbles. This deposit was unlikely to have been laid as a deliberate surface, rather it is more likely to have been formed from trample and erosion. No other finds, deposits or features of archaeological significance were encountered during the work.
