Abstract:
Stratascan were commissioned by Chester Archaeological Society to carry out a GPR survey at Roodee as part of an archaeological research program. The site is located on a car park lying between the city walls and the racecourse. The survey area is 110m long and has a maximum width of 28m and is currently used as a car park. The topography is mainly flat but with sloping sections and terraced areas close to the city wall. Diffractions across the southwestern edge of the survey area constitute weak evidence for surviving structural remains of possible archaeological origin. Two areas of strong complex anomalies have also been identified towards the south of the survey area, which may be of archaeological origin. No clear plan of previous structural remains can be determined due to the complexity of these radar returns, which may mean that they indicate areas of archaeological debris. Several services have been identified across the site, including a substantially sized service, probably a sewer or drain, at an approximate depth of 1.7m.
