Abstract:
Archaeological Surveys Ltd was commissioned by Kier Western to undertake a magnetometry and resistivity survey of an area of land at Carn Gwaval School on the island of St Mary's, Isles of Scilly. The site has been outlined for the development of the new Five Islands School. The results of the survey indicated the presence of a number of anomalies, although interpretation is limited as many are poorly defined and of low contrast. Anomalies have been caused by relatively recent land use and where extended periods of waterlogging occur across the eastern part of the site, magnetic susceptibility is suppressed and magnetic anomalies may not have formed. Linear anomalies within the western part of the site may indicate early land division and field layout; however, it is possible that more modern agricultural cultivation or land division is responsible. A ring-like high resistance anomaly, with a diameter of approximately 12m, was located in Area 4 which forms the eastern part of the site. The response may indicate the presence of structural remains and although the anomaly has been categorised as uncertain in origin, its archaeological potential should be considered. A round high resistance anomaly, with a diameter of approximately 6m, was also located in Area 4 and this appears to correlate with a low circular mound of unknown date.
