Abstract:
In February 2012, Souterrain Archaeological Services Limited carried out an archaeological geophysical survey in advance of proposed development at Compton Park, Wolverhampton. The survey was commissioned by MetroMOLA, on behalf of Redrow Homes Limited. The survey used the technique of fluxgate gradiometer. The aim of the survey was to detect potential buried archaeological remains, in particular, of the prehistoric, Roman and early medieval periods. the results of which would be used to help develop a strategy for evaluation by trial trenching. The survey was carried out in two zones: one in the southwest part of St.Edmund's School, covering the present football pitches and the proposed Wetland Area; and the other across the school football pitches to the northwest. The survey of the southwest area revealed archaeological type anomalies in the form of buried field boundaries, previously unrecorded ditches, and the former course of a brook. Other linear anomalies resulted from field drainage systems. The survey of the northwest area revealed an extensive system of field drains.
