Abstract:
This report documents the results of archaeological investigations on land adjacent to Wigton Road, Morton, Carlisle between March and July 2003, on behalf of Senator Homes Ltd. The report forms the archaeological component of an Environmental Impact Assessment regarding a proposed residential development. The purpose of the fieldwork was to evaluate the presence/absence of archaeological deposits and provide a predictive model including the nature, extent, condition and state of preservation of archaeological deposits. The work was done in two phases, the first for a duration of three weeks in March 2003, evaluating fields A and B, the second for a duration of three days in July 2003, evaluating field C. Archaeological deposits were excavated in plan and, where appropriate, in section, and were recorded in order to achieve an understanding of their nature, extent, depth and state of preservation. No significant surviving archaeological features were observed within any of the trenches excavated within Areas A, B and C. It is apparent that prior to enclosure the site consisted of poorly drained, ''barren commons'' which were improved by the excavation of field drains. The poor drainage may account for the lack of evidence of human activity prior to the 18th and 19th centuries.
