Abstract:
The archaeological works consisted of a watching brief which did not identify any archaeological features or finds. The comprehensive watching brief was carried out at three sites; Two Mile Spinney, Rookery Crossroads and Millfield Plantation. Few archaeological remains were encountered. Activities in the area during the Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age were indicated by the recovery of struck flints mostly from subsoil deposits. Previously unknown archaeological remains were revealed at Rookery Crossroads and comprised medieval and post-medieval ditches probably representing land partition and agricultural use during these periods. There appeared to be no correlation with earthworks identified at this location, confirmed as being of 19th century date. The results of a topographical survey of these earthworks within the road corridor to the north of Ravenwood Hotel and the two mounds at Two Mile Spinney were presented. The relocation of a milestone at Rookery Crossroads was carried-out and required a photographic survey to be made. No archaeological remains were present at Millfield Plantation and there was no evidence for the existence of a Roman Road postulated to have been in this area. [Au(abr)]
