Abstract:
This report was commissioned by AC Archaeology on behalf of clients as part of a programme of work in support of a forthcoming planning application. The magnetic contrast across the area was sufficient to be able to differentiate between anomalies representing possible archaeological features and background magnetic responses. Twenty-two magnetic anomaly groups were identified as relating to possible archaeological deposits or features. Of these, one coincides with a former field boundary mapped by the Ordnance Survey between 1886 and 1953-54. One group may represent a curvilinear field boundary with no relation to the current field system or possibly part of an enclosure, again at odds with the current field pattern. A set of two and possibly four anomaly groups appear to define two sides of a rectilinear enclosure which may have more than one feature defining the boundary or more than one phase of boundary. There is a distinct anomaly group with a sub-circular pattern which may represent an archaeological deposit. Given the presence of barrows in the vicinity, this group should be viewed as potentially archaeologically significant. Two further groups may represent deposits relating to barrows although alternative origins such as compact surfaces or large pits of archaeological or natural origin cannot be ruled out. A further two groups may represent archaeological pits although they may have a natural origin. The remaining magnetic anomaly groups identified as representing potential archaeological deposits or structures have characteristics typical of anomalies reflecting more than one phase former field and other enclosure boundaries.
