Abstract:
Archaeological works in advance of residential development on land at Trevassack Hill, Hayle, Cornwall, was undertaken by AC archaeology during February 2016. Following on from a trial trench evaluation a targeted excavation revealed a large pit containing sherds of pottery dated to the Bronze Age, with at the base a charcoal-rich deposit containing an amber bead and perforated worked stone both consistent with a Bronze Age date. In close proximity to the large pit was a small pit which also contained prehistoric pottery. The pits were located within a curving ditch which was undated, but may be an enclosure contemporary with the pits. Three further ditches were undated but are related to the alignment of the current field boundary to the east and probably represents former land division of medieval or early post-medieval date.
