Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Oakford Archaeology in September 2012 during work at Long Lane, Haccombe, Devon (SX 8860 7014). The site lies in an area of high archaeological potential less than 300m to the north of Milber Camp an Iron Age hillfort that is protected as a Scheduled Monument (1003178). The hillfort is of a type known as a multiple enclosure hill slope fort and is thought to date to the mid-to-late Iron Age (400BC-50AD). A small rectangular bivallate earthwork has also been identified outside the south-eastern perimeter of the hillfort. It was therefore considered possible that associated remains or deposits of prehistoric date may survive within the footprint of the development. A watching brief was maintained during works associated with the provision of new services for two steel changing rooms. The initial new service trenching was on average 0.4m wide and extended to a depth of between 1-1.10 m. The works associated with the new cess pit were 3.5m deep. Inspection of the groundworks showed very little evidence of archaeological activity. Field 1 contained the remains of three E-W aligned ditches. The groundworks in field 3 revealed a further E-W aligned linear south of the existing hedgebank. None of the ditches produced datable evidence, although in all cases they cut the subsoil, suggesting that they are relatively recent (i.e post-medieval). This is further suggested by the correlation of ditch 1004 with a boundary shown on the 1840's Tithe map.
