Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken on 52 ha of land in advance of a proposed hotel and golf course development. Fieldwalking led to the definition of five lithic scatter sites. 6 km of trenching demonstrated evidence of prehistoric activity and settlement in three main areas. Early Bronze Age usage of natural hollows was found in two separate areas. A Middle/Late Bronze Age roundhouse was revealed with associated pits and additional post holes. The discovery of a four poster and gullies dated to the Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age period. A large prehistoric ditch, located on the ridge of Clark's Hill, was exposed. This produced no diagnostic artefacts. One feature of Late Iron Age/Romano-British date was found. 17th century pits and enclosure ditches, seen as crop marks were revealed and an anti-tank trench was located. [Au(abr)]
