Abstract:
Dig Blacon was a Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) funded community archaeology project conducted by Big Heritage C.I.C. on behalf of CWAC's Public Health Team. The public element of the project commenced in June 2015 and concluded at the end of October 2015. Excavation was undertaken between 11th September and 23rd of October 2015. The project was primarily a test pitting exercise focused on the north-east area of Blacon Estate, to the north west of Chester (NGR SJ 384 675). Twenty test pits were excavated, supported by geophysical survey. These were undertaken in residential and business premises and on open public land.

Note:
Magnitude Surveys was commissioned to carry out a geophysical survey on a communal green adjacent to the site of the former Blacon Hall. The survey aimed to detect any archaeological remains, which would be the target for further excavation work as part of the Dig Blacon project. All of the geophysical techniques show some part or aspect of the former field boundaries, which are known through historic mapping and aerial imagery. There are some undetermined anomalies that exhibit similar geophysical properties to the former field boundaries, but have no correlation with any known features.
