Abstract:
This report presents the results of a rapid desk-based archaeological assessment and geophysical survey of a site proposed for housing development located to the immediate south of the Tresavean Estate on the southern edge of Lanner. The project was carried out by Historic Environment, Projects for Cornwall Council and the geophysical survey was carried out by ArchaeoPhysica Ltd. This report identifies and evaluates the archaeological resource within the area of the site, provides guidance on potential impact of the proposed development and recommends further appropriate archaeological work. The assessment and survey has identified sixteen sites of varying significance. Within the immediate area of the site these include a probable shaft, a removed boundary, potential mining or other linear features, a track, two extant boundaries (Sites 1 to 9). Beyond the immediate development area, but of potential relevance to it are a number of sites (Sites 11 to 13 and 15 to 16), including mines, an engine house and dense mining related earthworks identified via historic maps and aerial photographs to the south and east of the site, plus a potential medieval ridge and furrow site and an undated field system located to the east of the site (Sites 10 and 14). Agricultural land extends west from the site, whilst to the north the area has already seen housing development. An archaeological watching brief was recommended, with provision for the recording of any breached boundaries.
