Abstract:
South West Archaeology Limited was asked to conduct an archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey at land off St Mewan Lane, Trewoon, in St Mewan, Cornwall. The proposed site is a sub-rectangular field located within the former landholding of Trewoon Manor, of presumed medieval origin. In the 18th and 19th centuries this manor was partly broken up and the landscape subject to post-medieval agricultural enclosure influenced by the growing population associated with intensified mining and the china clay industry. The walkover survey suggests that all the boundaries of the site are historic field boundaries, although the northern and western boundaries have been partly truncated and/or rebuilt fairly recently. The well-maintained southern boundary appears to follow the gently-curving boundary of a medieval strip-field. The eastern boundary still features the adjacent holloway as depicted on the 1838 tithe map. While there is no indication on the ground of surviving archaeological features or deposits, some very subtle possible linear depressions were observed, though these appeared to correlate with the existing fieldsystem/gateways. Any archaeological earthworks are likely to have been flattened and truncated by medieval and post-medieval ploughing. Despite this, geophysical survey in the local area has identified extensive relict fieldsystems and several settlements dating to the Prehistoric and/or Romano-British period, and this is thus a landscape of high archaeological potential.
