Abstract:
An evaluation involving trial trenching, test-pitting and a magnetometer survey was carried out at a proposed development site. Romano-British remains, including roads, buildings, burials and a possible temple, had previously been recorded at four locations within the proposal area. During the evaluation, excavation was carried out in three separate zones. In Area A, post holes, pits, stake holes and ditches of probable prehistoric date and a group of extraction pits which were probably medieval were recorded. Pits, gullies and post holes of uncertain date were revealed in Area B, whilst an undisturbed buried land surface and deposits containing daub and sherds of Romano-British pottery were recorded in Area C. The buried land surface, which appeared to have been open and in use as undeveloped pasture until the 1920s, indicated the possibility that archaeological remains may have been preserved beneath that surface in a zone adjacent to the rear of the modern factory at the site; beyond that zone, the surface appeared to be sealed by up to 3m of made ground relating to the construction of the factory. The geophysical survey confirmed the presence and wider extent of a ditched enclosure, assessed by trial excavation in Area A. It was recommended that archaeological deposits in Area A should be preserved in situ, and that monitoring should be carried out during development works in Areas B and C. [AIP]
