Abstract:
An evaluation was carried out at the proposed site of a business park. Earlier assessment had identified the presence of earthworks representing three linked, sub-rectangular enclosures at the south-easternn boundary of trhe site, part of which extended into the site itself. Trenches excavated to investigate these earthworks demonstrated the presence of collapsed rubble banks defining the boundary of the enclosures. Gullies and possible cobble spreads and associated finds of pottery sherds were tentatively dated to the late Roman period. The features were thus representative of the fragmented surviving elements of a possible Romano-British habitation site, and were considered to be of regional significance. Elsewhere within the site, a hollow containing burnt stone, charcoal and a small quantity of smithing slag was recorded. This feature may have represented early, small-scale industrial activity close to the former course of the River Lune. [Au(abr)]
