Abstract:
On the 7th May 2017, a geophysical magnetometer survey was carried out by members of the Wiltshire Archaeology Field Group. The Site comprises of a high status medieval dwelling, interpreted as the manor house of the Bishop of Salisbury, dating to the 13th century. The survey was carried out in order to further the potential archaeological evidence of the Site, by surveying a much larger area of the Great Orchard, in comparison to past surveys in 2002 and 2006 using resistivity. This included the field to the south on high ground (Field One), and an area of flat grassland to the north downslope (Field Two). The middle of the field could not be surveyed due to the steepness of the slope and dense vegetation. The magnetometer survey located a number of small discrete pit-like features, and weak positive rectilinear features in Field Two to the north. The survey also located number of weak positive linear and rectilinear features in Field One, one of them forming a very small square enclosure. A large circular pit, linear and rectilinear features were also identified near to a large central structure, located towards the centre of Field One. The structure consists of two identifiable rectangular buildings, with possible internal divisions in between. The northern rectangular building has located within it, a large circular feature with a weak dipolar reading. This structure was also identified in past resistivity surveys and excavations, as a high status medieval building dating to the 13th century.
