Abstract:
AD Archaeology Ltd was commissioned to undertake an archaeological trenching evaluation in advance of a proposed development of the site as an extension of the existing long term car park. The evaluation trenches have confirmed that the system of linear anomalies identified by the earlier geophysical survey of the site by AD Archaeology represent furrows associated with ridge and furrow agricultural systems. It was suggested in the geophysical survey report that an earlier wider system of ridge and furrow, characterised as broad rigg (commonly of medieval origin) has been subsumed at least in the western portion of the field by latter narrow rigg of likely post-medieval date. The evaluation has demonstrated that the spacing or wavelength between furrows within the eastern end of the field was up to 9.5m (trench 6) and of the broad rigg type. In contrast, the furrows in the central and western portion of the field mainly measured between 4.5-5.4m (trenches 8, 10 and 14), although some wider spaced furrows in the central area (trench 11) may represent a remnant of an earlier broad rigg system. Trench 4 formed a transect across the two types of furrows. A gully (405) perhaps marked the edge of a broad rigg system in the eastern end of the trench which ran along the base of a furrow possibly defining a contemporary boundary. To the east of this line in trench 4, the furrows were more narrowly spaced.
