Abstract:
South West Archaeology Ltd. (SWARCH) was commissioned by Keith Mayock of Wills Bros Civil Engineering Ltd. to undertake archaeological monitoring and recording in advance of the development of the site. This phase of fieldwork targeted geophysical anomalies identified by a gradiometer survey carried out in 2016 (SWARCH 2016). The site is located immediately to the south-east of St. Erth Railway Station, within the fields associated with an abandoned and now destroyed farmstead called Peden an Pons. The archaeological works undertaken determined that disturbance associated with preparatory works, road construction in 2005×9, a massive service trench, and historic mining, was extensive and intensive. Almost nothing survives of Peden an Pons, but medieval pottery from the one surviving feature would suggest this ostensibly post-medieval farmstead was actually established in 14th-15th century. All of the other identified features on the site were ditches, the bulk of which are shown on the historic maps. A particularly complex series of features was identified at the western end of Area B, relating to the use, refurbishment and decommissioning of a local road. While this is all late 18th and 19th century in date, this is one of only a handful of examples to have been examined archaeologically.
