Abstract:
A two-stage archaeological evaluation at Dinham Road, St. David's, Exeter, was carried out. The site was located in an area where historical sources indicated the possible presence of Romano-British settlement evidence. It was within the mid-19th century educational and charitable 'village' at Mount Dinham. The evaluation comprised a geophysical survey in a playing field area, followed by the machine and hand-excavation of fifteen trenches across the whole of the site. The geophysical survey identified a number of anomalies that were subsequently targeted by trenches and were shown to be either variations in the natural subsoil or modern features. Elsewhere on the site, trenching identified the presence of Romano-British activity, but this was dispersed at fairly wide intervals across the site. Some of the feature types present (pits, post holes, gullies) indicate settlement and perhaps agricultural activity, with the finds recovered indicating a probable mid to late 2nd century AD date. In one trench a large probable ditched enclosure was present, which again was likely to be of Romano-British date. Elsewhere across the site some trenches contained a buried soil of medieval date, while in others either largely negative results were recorded or only modern features or disturbance were present.
