Abstract:
Magnetometer and earth resistance surveys were carried out at Sea End Lane, Dunster Beach, Carhampton, Somerset, after members of Dunster Museum Archaeological Group identified numerous sherds of Romano-British pottery eroding from the field edge bordering the beach. It was later determined that these sherds were contained within a cut feature identified from the exposure, further investigated by a monitoring and recording training project organised by the Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network (CITiZAN) in conjunction with the geophysical survey. The aim of the geophysical survey was to investigate the field adjacent to the pottery finds to help establish the extent and nature of the site at Dunster, and provide further information regarding the feature and its possible wider context. Both magnetic (1.5ha) and earth resistance (0.7ha) surveys identified a number of linear anomalies, morphologically representative of field boundaries, enclosures and trackways potentially Roman in date. Likely anomalies related to medieval ridge and furrow were also identified.
