Abstract:
Historic Environment Projects, Cornwall Council, was initially approached by Julia Edwards of Corylus Planning and Environmental Ltd. on behalf of Trethosa Solar Ltd. in Autumn 2012 with a request to provide undertake an assessment of a proposed solar farm at Trethosa Farm, St Stephen in Brannel covering an area of 10.7 Ha centred at SW 93909 54600. This initial project assessment consisted of a desk-based assessment and a walkover survey. The report (Sharpe 2012) recommended that a geophysical survey be undertaken to determine potential impacts on any sub-surface archaeology within the site. Archaeophysica Ltd was commissioned by the client to undertake a magnetometer survey at Trethosa in June 2013 in line with a requirement from the Historic Environment Planning Advice Officer (central). The geophysical survey revealed that the fields proposed for the development are underlain by a feature strongly resembling a round (a defended farmstead dating to the late Iron Age and the Romano-British period), together with a probably associated field system. The survey also indicated the location of two round houses of probably slightly earlier date, and a field system having an alignment different from that associated with the round and the round houses and that which is shown on historical maps and which is currently in use which may reflect the early post-medieval agricultural arrangement of the landscape. Management options which would minimise damage to the archaeology of the site should the development go ahead were included within the report.
