Abstract:
HE Projects was requested by Mr Derek Coyle of First Step Homes to provide a project design and an estimate for an archaeological assessment and geophysical survey of the proposed site for new build at land near Mount Ambrose, Redruth (PA/12/06996). Overall the development covers an area of approximately 0.49 Ha. The project comprised a desk-based assessment, analysis of a geophysical survey of the site and a walkover survey. The site derives from former medieval farmland which was developed as an eastern extension of the industrial settlement of Redruth in the early part of the 19th century, but occupies an area of the landscape within which there is some evidence for agricultural and settlement activities during the Iron Age and the Romano-British periods. The site walkover survey revealed the existence of two areas of earthworks within the field, though the origins of these were not evident. The magnetometer survey tentatively identified two sub-circular features within the eastern part of the site. Again, the identification of these features is unclear, though they may represent early mining activity on the site. It was recommended that these features be further examined, either through evaluation trenching, or through an archaeological watching brief during the groundworks phase of the project. A report summarising the results of the assessment and its conclusions was prepared for the client.
