Abstract:
Archaeological recording was carried out on land at adjacent Bungalow Farm, Childswickham, Broadway, Worcs. during May and June 2015 in connection with the erection of three detached dwellings. Historic mapping (OS 1885 and 1902) shows the site as formerly part of a larger open east-west rectangular field occupying an area to the north-west of the village where until recently there has been little or no development. The field has subsequently been sub-divided following the construction of Bungalow Farm to the north and an agricultural shed to the south. The area around the site is characterized by medieval cultivation as evidenced by an extensive pattern of medieval ridge and furrow still visible within the fields either side of Murcot Road. No archaeological deposits were observed during the excavation, instead a sequence of three stratified homogenous layers were recorded across the site. The earliest of these was a natural substrate comprising a geology of sandy-clay. This was in turn overlain by a layer of relict subsoil which was sealed by the existing topsoil. The site was relatively flat, but the variation in the thickness of the subsoil layer, ranging between 0.25-0.50m in depth within each trench is perhaps an indication that the site was also formerly cultivated with ridge and furrow. The absence of any archaeological deposits and a lack of finds would suggest little human activity within the study site apart from that associated with agriculture.
