Abstract:
In July 2015 a programme of archaeological work comprising trial trenching was carried out during July 2015 at land to the rear of The Urchins, Ashby Road, Leicestershire prior to the erection of two detached dwellings and associated landscaping The general stratigraphic sequence recorded during the evaluation comprising a natural clay, overlain by a relict subsoil or cultivation layer that was in turn sealed by the modern topsoil, reveals an historic predominantly agricultural landscape. The paucity of finds comprising three sherds of pottery ranging in date from the 12/13th to the 17th century are an indication of the date and low level of earlier human activity within the site and that this is likely to be attributed to the carrying out of agricultural practices. An absence of the earlier subsoil/cultivation deposit towards the southern higher end of the site may point to an earlier period of soil creep along the downward slope which could be attributed to previous cultivation. A concrete hardstanding and brick culvert present on the site during the evaluation, but outside of the development are consistent with features on the OS 1885 map and appear to form part of a former industrial complex. Significant truncation of the underlying deposits may associated with the demolition of some of these features that are no longer visible. A single area of pebble paving possibly formerly associated with occupation of the adjacent house in the 19th century was found within the end of the second trench although this was outside the area of development.
