Abstract:
A mitigation excavation followed after the initial results of an evaluation. The site sequence broadly consisted of a site that lay at the eastern margins of a prehistoric rivercourse and exposed gravels of late Pleistocene/early Holocene date, overlain by prehistoric and historic alluvium containing evidence for human activity. The alluvium was sealed by substantial depths of made ground. The alluvial deposit sequence present on the site records several phases of channel activity from the Neolithic to Iron Age. Interbedded sands, clays and gravels of likely prehistoric date were recorded at the base of trench PDZ12.01. These deposits accumulated on channel bars within shifting stream channels. A gravel horizon, within the sand bars produced flint debitage and a number of unabraded sherds of Neolithic pottery; an assemblage of animal remains, including horse, and a possible wooden stake structure. The sand bar deposits were truncated by a channel containing a possible dislodged/disaggregated wooden structure comprising of the remnants of at least four roundwood timbers. The remains are presently undated but are not thought to predate the Iron Age. The active channel deposits across the base of the trench were overlain by a sequence of organic clays and peats, which are likely to represent a channel marginal backwater environment that gradually silted up. An early medieval channel consistent with a possible site of a mill works was identified in the upper part of the alluvium. Substantial gravel dumps were laid down to consolidate the ground above the alluvium prior to construction which, characterised by a range of wells, cess pits, brick walls and drains, was present in the upper levels of the sites, dated to the 17th century. A number of walls recorded in section at the northern end of the site were clearly Victorian in origin and are likely to relate to the former Christ Church known to have been located in this part of PDZ12.
