Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Oakford Archaeology in October 2013 during work at Upham Farm, Farringdon, Devon. The site lies in an area of high archaeological potential some 100m to the east of a possible prehistoric enclosure identified through aerial photography. 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 construction of a new agricultural storage building and access track. The footprint of the building and yard was approximately 25m long and 20m wide, extending to a depth of between 0.8-0.9m. The work associated with the new access track was on average 4.5m wide and between 0.2-0.4m deep. These revealed a simple deposit sequence of topsoil and subsoi over natural subsoil extending across the entire site. No deposits, features or dating evidence indicative of archaeological activity was found. The lack of pottery and lithics from the site, despite examination of spoil heaps, further indicates that the site is archaeologically sterile.
