Abstract:
Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Swarbrick Associates on behalf of Stanwix School to undertake an archaeological evaluation in the grounds of Stanwix School, Stanwix, Carlisle (NY 34015 55715). The work was required to inform an application for scheduled monument consent and planning permission to construct a small extension to the school east of the existing complex. The fieldwork was undertaken in November 2004. The school is situated in an area which has been identified as being of high archaeological importance and is statutorily protected as a Scheduled Monument (County Sites and Monuments Record 5782, Scheduled Monument 28484). The evaluation revealed overburden deposits relating to the construction of the extension to the school in 1999-2000. These directly overlay post-medieval construction deposits (relating to the school's construction) and garden-soils, relating to the use of the land as a gardens and orchards prior to the school's construction. Sealed beneath the garden soils was a cobbled surface, thought to be Roman in origin. At the western end of the trench, a ditch was identified, clearly cutting the cobbled surface but sealed by the post-medieval garden soils. The ditch is roughly dated to either the medieval or Roman periods. A post-medieval pipe trench was also identified. The watching brief was undertaken on the 24th June 2005. A man made membrane was inserted to cover the archaeological deposits and it was agreed that the extension foundations would be excavated to this level.
