Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in advance of redevelopment for a new business park. Previous archaeological work (in the form of fieldwalking and metal detecting) had identified artefact scatters in numerous areas of the site whilst a geophysical survey had identified several linear anomalies. In addition, a possible ring-ditch had been noted on an aerial photograph. 66 evaluation trenches were excavated within the area of the proposed development. Archaeological features were recorded in ten trenches located to the north-east of the site, including ditches, pits, several post holes and a drying or malting oven. Dating evidence was generally sparse although most features probably related to agricultural activity during the Roman period (indicated by the prevalence of ditches associated with land division). There was a possibility, however, that a few features may have originated in the Bronze Age. The possible ring ditch visible on an aerial photograph proved to be a natural anomaly. Severe plough damage was apparent although the degree of resultant truncation varied across the site. [Au(abr)]
