Abstract:
An evaluation comprising desk-based study, a magnetometer survey and the excavation of two trial trenches was carried out at the proposed site of a house, within a walled garden. Fineshade Castle and Priory, a SAM, lay immediately to the south. The site lay within Rockingham Forest, an important ironworking area from the Iron Age to the post-medieval period, which had been established as an Archaeological Priority Area. The castle, which was built in the 12th century, was demolished between 1199 and 1208 and replaced by the priory, which was converted to a residence in the 16th century. The buildings were replaced by a mansion in the 18th century. The magnetometer survey indicated the presence of significant magnetic anomalies denoting possible traces of ironworking activity. The trial excavation revealed a series of slag deposits and an iron-smelting furnace dating from the Roman period, as well as the base of a 19th century path with an integral drain, a pit containing large quantities of animal bone and 19th century china, and an undated gully. The deposits associated with metal-working activity had been severely truncated by prolonged cultivation. [AIP]
