Abstract:
An archaeological trenched evaluation of former gardens/wasteground was undertaken on the 17th March 2014 in response to a planning requirement set by Andy Thomas, Senior Archaeologist prior to the development of the site as four dwellings with associated services and access. Three linear trenches, totalling 35m in length were opened using a 3.5 tonne 360 degree tracked excavator with toothless ditching bucket. A further 10 test-pits (1m x 1m) were opened across the site on a ten metre grid to characterize the artefact content of the topsoil. All exposed trench bases and spoil were scanned by an experienced Metal Detectorist. The upper layers (<0.30m) had considerable root turbation, a reflection of the sites recent history as an orchard, recorded on the 1888 and 1902 ordnance survey maps. The archaeological survey revealed no archaeological features, other than a single field drain [4], present in all three trenches and aligned East to West. The work showed the strata of the site to consist of topsoil (1) of a consistent 0.15m depth across the site, sealing layer (2), which was found to be 0.15m in depth on the western side of the site, and 0.45m on the eastern side.
