Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was carried out on a proposed development site south of Tinney's Lane, Sherborne, Over 2% of the proposed development was assessed by machine dug evaluation trenches. In general the evaluation suggested that the site was largely unaffected by modern disturbance, and that archaeological levels, though dispersed and discontinuous, did exist and were well preserved. Trenching in the northeastern part of the site revealed evidence of extensive medieval quarrying, and a large ditch containing Roman pottery was discovered. In the middle of the site a human crouched inhumation was found, almost certainly of prehistoric date, and possibly contemporaneous with a nearby find of Bronze Age pottery. Other undated features of interest were revealed. Other parts of the site revealed evidence of post-medieval terracing activity. [Au(adp)]
