COLLECTIONS HISTORY 2019

October 2019:  Asphodel (The Birdcage)
Asphodel and its only surviving base have changed between its founding in April 2017 and the Atlas Rises cataclysm in August 2018. The Birdcage, created by player gcderrick, once shared a planet with other player bases, as well as a system densely populated in the Galactic Hub. The update changed all of the planet names (as scanned from space), and the other bases (including Elysium) have all disappeared. Asphodel itself was a paradise planet when it was discovered in December 2016, and the v1.3 change affected by the patch made the planet gorgeous in an entirely different and synthetic way, paving it in gold a white tiles.

October 2019:  Caoimhe (Paddy's Paddock)
The site of Paddy's Paddock was created by player Crispy Chrisu on the planet formerly known as Caoimhe in the Pathfinder era. The abandoned settlement is notable for two features: 1) a large billboard featuring the thumb logo from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and 2) the base has moved from its original building site, likely because of a glitch or player agency prior to the arrival of Andrew Reinhard for the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project. Four communication stations mark the base's original location.

October 2019:  Elebor (Longitude Base)
UniDestiny's base is oriented roughly east-west with the base unit opening to the west. A Roamer exocraft geobay lies just east of the main building. A Nomad exocraft geobay is immediately to the west. The building preserves a coiled, snakelike build, which is incomplete. The base unit ID and blueprint vendor are intact. Walking down a short corridor, one walks up a flight of stairs adjacent to an automatic door that opens into the air. A second flight of stairs leads one to a bare room and a dead-end corridor. The entire structure is absent of furniture and decoration, unlike its complete build, which is pictured below.

October 2019:  Eslachlan Kayham (Panda's)
Panda's base on Eslachlan Kayham was built on 27 August 2017, although the Legacy Hub planet had been discovered by Galactic Hub second-in-command AndyKrycek on 10 December 2016 and further explored by him in March, April, and August 2017, although he never built there. This is a rare example of a planet being discovered, visited, but not settled by the original player, instead inhabited by another Hub member months after the discovery. The base itself is agricultural with a bi-level hydroponic farm containing rare plants for anyone to harvest.

October 2019:  GlassShop (Hiviehale Outpost)
The planet GlassShop in the Legacy is both paradox and contradiction: paradox because the same base unit exists in two places at once, and contradiction because a cold-weather crop currently grows on a hot-weather planet, albeit underground.

October 2019:  Arpinsarypov (Mother Base)
The single thing that makes Mother Base in the Legacy Hub stand out is the fact that it is completely ordinary in every way. It is the first such Legacy Base (22/30) that did not float, was not buried, did not glitch, did not exist in two places at once, was not half-deconstructed, and remained in its original Pathfinder-era location. There is absolutely nothing "wrong" with this base, which of therefore makes it an anomaly in No Man's Sky post-v1.3 update. There is nothing odd about the base except the fact that its normal behavior is odd. The base could be treated as a control to the other bases that contain unusual phenomena. Despite its ordinary nature, Mother Base's homeworld did suffer a change from the Atlas Rises cataclsym, changing from a lush planet to a barren moon literally overnight.

October 2019:  Ahibahcal Anai (Onsen Portal Observatory)
Despite player morgvom_org's base on Ahibahcal Anai being called a "portal observatory", there is no longer a portal on this world because of the planet's frozen state after the cataclysm of the Atlas Rises update. The base is not an observatory. Instead it is a colossal model of Deep Thought, the computer from Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, broadcasting the answer to life, the universe, and everything: "42", on a decal on the front interior wall. Evidence of a racecourse remains, but the course itself is lost.

October 2019:  Abundance (Abundance H.Q.)
Abundance H.Q. was the 3rd base investigated by Andrew Reinhard for the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project. It is noteworthy for being the first glitched base to be documented levitating above the Atlas Rises-era planet's topography. Communication stations are both buried under bedrock out of reach, in topsoil, and suspended 5-20m above ground-level. The settlement is also the first to be documented relocating and rebuilding itself after player interference. The published site report was read by the base's architect, himshieland, who was able to add to the history of Abundance, complementing the archaeological record. The base was also temporarily missing because of a nearby squatter, something made possible by game mechanics in an early iteration of the Atlas Rises update.

October 2019:  Bluegrass Moon (Dwrigger-Drle Outpost)
The Bluegrass Moon orbits the Bluegrass Planet and marks an instance where one player settlement in a shared system likely overwrote another. Based on the dates of the waypoints discovered on each world, both were settled at roughly the same time, with the Serenity Villa built first on the planet, followed later by Dwrigger-Drle Outpost on the moon. The moon outpost is a typical human settlement and is neither farm nor memorial. A handful of communication stations surround the base, with others placed next to two additional unclaimed base units indicating intent to settle (although none did). One feature unique to Bluegrass Moon is a "natural" rock formation in the shape of an "e", which one visitor marked with a communication station, the first time in this project that a Hub player marked a natural feature as opposed to anything created by a fellow human player.

October 2019:  Former electricity substation, Merryoaks, Durham City: archaeological building recording (OASIS ID: archaeol3-355311)
Level 2 survey of a brick substation building. The building was constructed betweem 1898 and 1919 and substantially enalrged before 1939. It has been disused for many years and all electrical plant has been removed.

October 2019:  Lime Lane, Oakwood, Derby: Geophysical survey and evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-290324)
During March 2017 Oxford Archaeology undertook a trial trench evaluation at Lime Lane, Oakwood, Derby. The evaluation comprised 15 trenches 50m long and c1.8m wide. Geophysical survey had revealed a number of linear and discrete anomalies provisionally interpreted as of archaeological origin, but none of these proved to be of ancient origin. Most of the linear features that were identified were post-medieval furrows orientated SSW-NNE, corresponding to some of those identified in the geophysical survey carried out in 2015. Two of these were dated to the 17th-19th century by single sherds of pottery. Many supposed linear features identified in the geophysical survey in the central part of the site did not appear at all below the ploughsoil, and were probably vestigial traces of former allotments of early 20th century date. The discrete anomalies that were targeted proved to be either illusory or to be variations in the underlying geology, with the exception of two postholes of recent date in Trench 13, and one possible but undated posthole in Trench 16. The evaluation found no evidence of archaeological activity prior to the postmedieval period. Three linear features were dated from the 16th-19th century by single sherds of post-medieval pottery and one copper alloy button. One of these was a former boundary ditch shown on historic OS maps. One recent circular pit was also found in Trench 4. The only features of potentially earlier date are a small gully in Trench 14 and what may be either a furrow or a small ditch in Trench 16, together with the undated possible posthole in Trench 16. All of these are undated.

October 2019:  New Athena (Grand Castle of Hova v1)
Grand Castle of Hov v1 is one of KingJamesHova's earliest builds, created a little over two weeks after the Pathfinder update (March 8, 2017) enabled public base-sharing. The castle is quite large and elaborate when compared to other Legacy bases, taking over a minute to walk around and consisting of three levels topped by a dome. The base is oriented at the cardinal points of the compass with the main entry (and primary entrance to the encased base unit) to the south. A few communication stations ring the outside of the base's perimeter, and other stations lie in the distance. Comm station No. 9 is an hour's walk to the southwest just outside of an observatory complex. Its message, however, hints at the sole predatory animal on the moon, a creature which no longer seems to exist post-Atlas Rises. Roughly half of the comm stations were placed by Hub players, two of whom have built bases visited for the NMS Archaeogical Project (hollyworks and art-nik). In the case of art-nik, his comm station throws down the gauntlet of resistance to the Empire of Hova at Hova's own castle. Art-nik's base is the Bez-Harr Space Embassy where KingJamesHova built a monument with THEKINGSNAKE, whose comm station on New Athena pledges unity with Hova. Base on the dates of the comm balls and identified Waypoints, these pre-date the coming Harsh Buds War between the Galactic Hub and the Empire of Hova, and mark an escalation in tensions between the two Hub regions. Andrew Reinhard conducted his survey of New Athena on 23 May 2018 creating a site report and map while recording videos and images of the base, which was later completely destroyed by the No Man's Sky: NEXT update in August 2018.

October 2019:  Vaguileochi (TEC FLB Valhalla)
The Galactic Hub base, TEC FLB Valhalla, was built during the Pathfinder era in July 2017 by player damon8r351, a member of the Alliance of Galactic Travellers (AGT). Ruined by the Atlas Rises update, the base hung in midair where the landscape used to be before the 1.3 update changed the terrain. This is a good example of disarticulated, suspended ruins. The base's architect left it abandoned in situ not bothering to deconstruct the base for resources. Crops continued to grow inside their hydroponic domes. Archaeological survey and a failed excavation of a communication station ran from 3-4 July 2018 one month before No Man's Sky: NEXT deployed and wiped out all remaining Legacy Hub ruins, including Valhalla. This site is part of the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project, which documented abandoned human settlements within the synthetic environment of the game No Man's Sky. This base was part of the original Galactic Hub, now known as the Legacy Hub, a place special to the original community, to the community of players at-large, and to the lore and history of this digital built environment.

October 2019:  Land north of Felton, Alnwick, Northumberland. Archaeological Strip and Record (OASIS ID: adarchae1-306159)
AD Archaeology conducted a strip and record excavation on land to the north of Felton between September 2016 and February 2017. The discovery and excavation of an Anglo-Saxon settlement during this project has provided a valuable contribution to the study of settlement from this period in the north-east of England. A number of postholes, pits and fragmentary gullys concentrated in the central and eastern portion of the excavation represent an unenclosed settlement from the Anglo-Saxon period. Additionally, Prehistoric activity was represented by a pit containing the fragmented remains of up to three vessels dating from the mid-later Neolithic period.

October 2019:  The Nigerian Field - Journal of the Nigerian Field Society
The Nigerian Field Society was formed in 1930 by A.F.B. Bridges, who was working in the colonial service in Nigeria, and the Journal was first published in the following year. The editorship was assumed in 1934 by E.F.G. Haig, and he continued in this post until 1976, when the job was taken over by the late Professor Beverly Halstead. From 1983 onwards there have been four other editors, all based in Nigeria, the current editor being Professor A.O. Isichei, at the University of Ife. There are several branches of the Society in Nigeria, and also a branch in the U.K. The aims of the Society remain as they always have been. It is 'an organisation devoted to the study of West Africa, its plants, animals and environment, its peoples and their culture', and the journal is also devoted to these ends.

October 2019:  Warton Crag Lidar Survey Raw Data: Headlands to Headspace Landscape Partnership Scheme and Historic England
The Heritage Lottery Funded Headlands to Headspace Landscape Partnership Scheme was undertaken between 2014-2018. As part of this Scheme, one of the aims was to undertake additional research and recording of archaeological sites in Morecambe Bay. A particular focus was removing the sites from the Heritage at Risk Register, working in Partnership with Historic England and Arnside and Silverdale AONB Partnership. A bespoke 25cm Lidar survey was commissioned by Morecambe Bay Partnership and Historic England to provide detailed data to enhance the location of features and understanding of the scheduled monument located on the summit of Warton Crag and surrounding landscape.

October 2019:  Project Swift, Farm Park, Nature and Outdoor Activity Centre, Culham, Oxfordshire. Geophysical Survey. (OASIS ID: headland5-321152)
Headland Archaeology (UK) Ltd undertook a geophysical (magnetometer) survey at Culham, Oxfordshire. Three distinct areas of archaeological activity have been identified by the geophysical survey, two of which comprise linear and curvilinear anomalies (soil-filled ditches), together forming systems of land division and enclosure within which seven ring-ditch anomalies suggestive of settlement activity have been identified.

August 2019:  Pepper Dusk (Peaceful Pepperbase and Cave of Forgotten Dreams)
Syn1334 is the founder and chief executive of the Galactic Hub, and Pepper Dusk was his original homeworld and site of Peaceful Pepperbase. The Pathfinder-era settlement became a spot for heritage tourists who came to pay their respects to the Hub's founder, most of them leaving communication station inscriptions of thanks and admiration in a nearby cave later dubbed by the Hub as the "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" after the Werner Herzog film. Over 60 inscriptions were left behind, and included descriptions of the original landscape, of the base and its racecourse. Some included dates when they were placed, and others contained addresses and invitations to visit other settlements in the Hub and elsewhere. Syn1334 himself left a station with a forwarding address post-Atlas Rises.

August 2019:  Lennon (Old Galactic Hub Capital)
The planet of Lennon was founded as the capital of the Galactic Hub in 2017 by Hub leader Syn1334 after a vote taken by early Hub citizens. Once a Paradise-class planet, the Atlas Rises cataclysm reset the planet's topography and climate to a rugged wintry waste, renaming it Drogradur NO-425. The capital is noteworthy not because of any settlements left behind, but rather for the massive inscriptional evidence left in the form of communication stations by dozens of players. These inscriptions are a mix of those left by Lennon's departing citizens, by other Hub residents who attended a "portal party" marking the exodus of the Legacy Hub for the new Hub, and from heritage tourists, players who make the pilgrimage to the original capital to pay their respects. These communication stations change over time, later ones replacing earlier ones. Those recorded early in the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project are now gone, replaced by more recent inscriptions. This site record contains visual proof of this phenomenon.

August 2019:  St Mary's Church, Ambrosden: Watching Brief (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-355549)
In September and October 2014, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at St Mary's Church, Church Walk, Ambrosden, Oxfordshire (NGR: SP 6030 1941). The work was commissioned by PBA Designs on behalf of the Incumbent and Church Wardens and was carried out during the installation of a wheelchair accessible disabled WC extension and the digging of service trenches in the churchyard. Eighteen earth cut graves were revealed within the foot print of the WC extension and a further 28 were uncovered within the service trenches. From these, 44 skeletons (33 adults and 11 juveniles) were excavated. Iron coffin fittings and two lead coffins indicated that at least 21 of the burials were of post-medieval date. The remainder (25 burials) were possibly medieval. No archaeological remains of the earlier church were encountered.

August 2019:  Crowtrees Colliery, Quarrington Hill, County Durham: Archaeological Building Recording (OASIS ID: archaeoe1-76298)
Archaeo-Environment Ltd were commissioned by the Crowtree Heritage Group to undertake an Archaeological Building Survey of the standing remains associated with the former Crowtrees Colliery. These included a large concrete and stone structure towards the centre of the site thought to be the winding engine house, and a smaller masonry structure to the NE of the capped pit head. The engine platform is constructed of large masonry blocks interspersed with layers of shuttered concrete, and this may have been to absorb and redistribute some of the vibrations from the engine originally mounted on top of the platform. The second structure to the east of the capped pit head it thought to have been a vertical pumping engine. The standing building remains at Crowtrees are considered to be of regional if not national significance as they are rare examples of a 19th century winding house and associated features.

August 2019:  18-19 Hanover Square, Bond Street Station (Eastern Ticket Hall) (Crossrail XSG10)
A series of nine geotechnical test pits were subject to a targeted watching brief undertaken by Oxford Archaeology/Gifford (OAG), in the basements of 18 and 19 Hanover Square. This work was part of the works for the Bond Street Station Eastern Ticket Hall (ETH), centred around Hanover Square, City of Westminster, London. The works took place in July 2010 and, due to the restricted nature of the watching brief works and the extent of 20th- century truncation encountered, the results and conclusions of the investigations were limited. At the base of several test pits the underlying natural was identified as Lynch Hill terrace gravels.

August 2019:  Blomfield Street Phase 2 Mitigation, 11-12 Blomfield Street (Crossrail XTB12)
The archaeological work on site consisted of three separate interventions: an excavation in the area of the grout box, a targeted watching brief on the area of the Main box, and a general watching brief during ground reduction of the rest of the site. The excavation of the grout shaft area was done in two phases in order to get a full east-west section across the shaft. The intention of this excavation was to explore the results seen in the evaluation that uncovered the eastern edge of the main channel of the Walbrook. During this phase the channel was successfully recorded across the width of the trench. Natural sand and gravels were seen at the base (5.90m OD) followed by a succession of flood deposits, marshy peat, and a Roman dump layer which contained a number of pieces of pottery and ceramic building material dating between 50 and 400 AD. The targeted watching brief in the southern portion of the site recorded a probable continuation of the Walbrook Channel with Roman dumping layers and a north-south running ditch. In the south-east corner of the site the targeted watching brief recorded natural terrace gravels at a much higher level (8.33m OD) than in the grout shaft, suggesting this would have been dryer ground near the edge of the Walbrook. An east-west running ditch cut into the subsoil and underlying natural terrace gravels dated to the 12th century by pottery found within the fills. This was in turn cut by a north-south running ditch. These may represent medieval attempts to drain the higher ground to the east into the Walbrook. The general watching brief on ground reduction across the rest of the site revealed late 19th/early 20th century brickwork and rail ines in the northern portion of the site, probably related to Metropolitan Line.

August 2019:  Blomfield Worksite, Liverpool Street, 11-12 Blomfield Street, EC2 (Crossrail XSL10)
Three trenches were excavated in the basement of the now-demolished 11 and 12 Blomfield Street and rearward extensions. Natural gravels were exposed in two trenches. In the E of the site, natural deposits were cut by a series of sterile waterlain clays sloping from W-E, probably from a relatively fast flowing section of the Roman Walbrook (or a tributary of it) whose ancient alignment is echoed in the current N-S orientation of Blomfield Street. A small fragment of Roman tegula roofing tile dated AD 50-160 was recovered from within a sandy dump deposit sealing this sequence, mortar on the broken edge suggesting reuse. To the west the sequence was repeated, with a naturally formed alluvial layer and inclusions of wood and plant suggesting formation in a semi-terrestrial environment, possibly delineating the eastern edge of the Walbrook. Again Roman pottery was recovered from overlying dump and/or reclamation layers. The earliest tentatively identified as a Roman round-bodied jar likely to be 1st century in date. A sherd of Roman natural blue-green glass was also recovered along with pottery common in London assemblages dated to the 1st-3rd centuries. This suggests that this part of the Walbrook may have been backfilled or become disused in the 2nd-3rd centuries, with dumped domestic rubbish utilised as landfill. In the lower double basement at the back of 11 Blomfiled, 19-c brickwork was exposed immediately below the foundation slab. A floor surface and wall formed of yellow stock bricks were of similar construction and probably contemporary appearing to relate to an earlier phase of construction, and may an be a retaining wall for the metropolitan line underground built in the 1870's. The basements and foundations of 19th and 20th-c buildings completed the archaeological sequence in all areas of the site.

August 2019:  Bond Street Station (Crossrail XSC10)
A programme of archaeological investigations were undertaken by Oxford Archaeology/Ramboll UK (OAR), in the vicinity of the new Crossrail Bond Street Station. The excavation revealed the infilled channel of the River Tyburn which was overlain by the remnants of 18th-20th century structures, ncluding a possible 18th century stables, St Anselm's School, St Anselm's Church and 65 Davies Street which was demolished ahead of construction for Crossrail. A programme of archaeological investigations were undertaken by Oxford Archaeology/Ramboll UK (OAR), in the vicinity Bond Street Station, City of Westminster, London W1 (between TQ 28486 80971 and TQ 28904 81124). The intermittent watching brief works which, commenced in June 2010 and continued through to February 2013, comprised the monitoring and recording of works prior to and during the construction of the Crossrail Bond Street Station (Ticket Halls East and West). The works monitored were generally relatively shallow, with the exception of the excavation of Grout Shafts and bulk excavations at 65 Davies Street (Western Ticket Hall). The majority of the archaeological deposits observed during the project, were dumps and levelling layers, effectively infilling the topography of the Tyburn Valley, prior to the development of the area in the 18th and 19th centuries. A number of 18th and 19th century brick built cellars and sewers were recorded, as well as more substantial brick buildings and cobbled surfaces in the South Molten Lane and Tenterden Street. Deposits associated with the former course(s) of the River Tyburn were uncovered at the base of Grout Shafts in South Molten Lane and in a number of utility trenches. Gravels and sands were observed in all of the Grout Shafts and during the Davies Street bulk excavations. These were identified as Pleistocene River Terrace deposits (Lynch Hill Gravels). The sands and gravels overlay layers of London Clay, which were seen in the base of all of the Grout Shafts. No artefacts or ecofacts were observed in these geological deposits.

August 2019:  City Wall at Old Broad Street (Crossrail XSZ11)
Archaeological watching brief on Crossrail utility diversions at Old Broad Street in the predicted location of the City Wall (Scheduled Monument LO26N). A trench (19.00m long x 0.60 to 1.00m wide) was dug to install new utility ducts, and was between 0.45 to 0.80m deep. The trench was located at the south end of Old Broad Street, at the junction with London Wall. Although within the area of the City Wall, no archaeological remains were encountered in this area at this depth. An archaeological watching brief on three gas main trial trenches in London Wall (between the junctions with Coleman Street and Blomfield Street). This followed a previous phase involving a watching brief on a utility trench in Old Broad Street (molas1-117511). The trenches on London Wall revealed truncated sections of circa 17th to 19th-century brick walls and floors between 0.30 and 3.90m below the existing road surface. These features were not fully exposed but were possibly the remnants of backfilled cellars or culverts. Although the monitoring was carried out to prevent damage to the City Wall (Scheduled Monument (LO26N and LO26P)), no remains relating to the City Wall were encountered. The area was found to have been extensively disturbed by numerous modern utilities. A small section of The London wall (LO26P) was exposed, recorded and surveyed- the earliest deposit identified. The 0.38m by 0.2m fragment been heavily truncated by 19th-20th century utilities, and only survived as an isolated feature slightly to the north of the junction between Blomfield Street and London Wall. A larger section of wall was also exposed to the south-east, which had been previously exposed during earlier Crossrail works, also monitored by MOLA (MOLA 2010). The anticipated postern (gate) that had also been previously recorded by Compass to the north of the traffic island (southern end of Blomfield Street) did not survive within the narrow utilities trench. MOLA's fieldwork helped to more accurately record and locate these surviving parts of the wall, adding to the wider database of the predicted east-west wall alignment along London Wall. No archaeologically significant deposits were exposed in the trial hole adjacent to 41/42 London wall.

August 2019:  Connaught Tunnel (Crossrail XSY11)
This archive presents the results of a field evaluation carried out by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) on the site of Connaught Tunnel, London E16, in the London Borough of Newham. The work was commissioned from MOLA by Crossrail Ltd. The sequence in the four trenches excavated is typified by basal sands grading up from the underlying gravels, overlain by peats and sealed by alluvial clays. The elevation of the surface of the Pleistocene / Early Holocene sands to the base of the sequence indicates that Trenches 1 and 4 are likely to be on the margins of discrete landscape features such as floodplain islands previously indicated around Custom House and others suggested around London City Airport. Trenches 2 and 3 appear to be within lower areas of migrating channels. The peat deposits contained discrete bands of organic clays; the thickness, position and number of which varied between the trenches and indicates different landscape positions or hydrology, with prehistoric and potentially historic channels evident in Trench 3. The top of the upper alluvial clays were likely to have been truncated in the past within some of the trenches and the thickness of the overlying made ground varied between the trenches. Trenches 1, 3 and 4 appeared to have been truncated but showed later possibly medieval to historic soil development before the addition of made ground. The alluvial clay in Trench 2 appears to have been least truncated with the survival of upper weathered alluvial deposits and very little made ground.

August 2019:  Custom House Station, Victoria Dock Road (Crossrail XTI13)
4 trial trenches and two window samples exposed former wood peat (intrepreted to be the former backswamp area of the Thames Floodplain) overlying late Pleistocene Shepperton Gravels. Above the peat was estuarine influenced alluvial clay.

August 2019:  Eleanor Street Shaft (Crossrail XTJ13)
This archive presents the results of an archaeological evaluation carried out by Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) on the site of the Eleanor Street Shaft, within the area known as the Bow Triangle, London E3, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Overlying the natural terrace gravels in evaluation Trench 1 (area of the temporary shaft) was a layer of reworked brickearth, probably as a result of cultivation, dated by clay tobacco pipe to 1700-1770. Above this was a buried soil which was interpreted as a horticultural horizon. Overlying this were 19th-century building remains, sealed by modern overburden. Underlying the modern made ground on the site was a layer covering the entire shaft area. This has been dated to c.1480-1800/1900 and interpreted as a post-medieval cultivation soil. Historic mapping illustrates that the site remained undeveloped through the post medieval period until the mid-19th century, when urban development around the site accelerated and construction of railways in this part of London began. On Gascoigne's 1703 map the site was open ground, the later maps of Rocque in 1746 and Horwood in 1799 show the area was in use as fields and Stanford's map of 1862 depicts the area surrounding Eleanor Street comprising of market gardens. These are all consistent with the archaeological evidence. Underlying the layer were natural terrace gravels. The archaeological fieldwork has demonstrated that remains relating to the Prehistoric, Roman or medieval period have not survived to the modern era, if they were once present on site.

August 2019:  Farringdon Eastern Ticket Hall, Phase 2 Mitigation, Hayne Street (Crossrail XTE12)
A series of investigations were undertaken at the site of the new Farringdon Eastern Ticket Hall (ETH) and the surrounding streets between 2011 and 2013, culminating in a phase of excavation located in the north-east of the site. In addition two trenches were excavated within the gardens of Charterhouse Square in 2014, as part of a community project. The trench locations were informed by a Forensic Geophysical Survey produced by Keele University, and were restricted by root preservation orders. The interventions at the ETH uncovered a relatively complete sequence from natural deposits through to 20th-century features, although there were localised areas of complete truncation. A solitary medieval adult burial and a series of metalled surfaces were recorded within the gardens of Charterhouse, forming part of a sequence dating from the medieval period to the 20th century.

August 2019:  Farringdon Station, Minor Works and Utility Diversions, Hayne Street (Crossrail XSF10)
Combined general and targeted watching briefs were carried out at the site of Crossrail Farringdon Eastern ticket Hall by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA). Natural gravels were not exposed at Formation level (15.10m OD) . Disarticulated human remains (probably associated with the medieval burial ground in Charterhouse Square) were recovered within a later levelling deposit dated1480-1600. Suggesting that the burial ground may have extended further west then expsected. A series of post medieval dumps and a pit, as well as garden soil horizons are consistent with the low levels of human activiyty in the area after the formation of Charterhouse square gardens in the 16th century.

August 2019:  Finsbury Circus, Liverpool Street (Crossrail XRZ10)
Two phases of archaeological excavation (two general watching briefs and one evaluation with one trench) were carried out at the site of Crossrail Finsbury Circus Shaft by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA), between 11/03/11 to 01/04/11. 19th-century garden soil horizons overlying post-medieval dumps were recoreded at a maximum depth of 9.86 OD. These were related to the reclimanation of land overlying Moorfields Marsh. Medieval marsh deposits sealed Roman cut features at 8.6 OD. These included a possible quarry pit and intercutting ditch and pit. Natural Gravels and sand were truncated to a maximum depth of 7.92 OD. Combined general and targeted watching briefs were carried out at the site of Crossrail Finsbury Circus Shaft by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA). Natural Gravels and sand were truncated to a maximum depth of 7.95m OD. A channel exposed in the western area of the shaft footprint may have been the route of the Early Holocene Walbrook River. Medieval marsh deposits sealed Roman cut features at 8.73m OD. These included two [rubbish] pits dated to the second century AD. Post-medieval dumps relating to the reclaimation of land overlying Moorfields Marsh were recorded at a maximum depth of 9.86m OD. A robust, well preserved NE-SW aligned culvert dated 1666-1800 was also recorded immediatly beneath the foundations of a recently demolished Victorian building. 19th-century and later garden soil horizons associated with sites current use as a park/bowling green filled the shaft to ground level.

August 2019:  Gazetteer of Heritage Assets assessed for Built Heritage and Railway Heritage Publications (Crossrail Publication Series Nos 3 and 4)
The Gazetteer of Heritage Assets assessed for Built Heritage and Railway Heritage Publications is a compendium of the Heritage Assets affected by Crossrail construction and provides references for further reading on these assets including stand-alone survey reports where carried out and information where included in the Crossrail Heritage and Landscape Technical Reports.

August 2019:  Ham and Wick Sewer Protection (Crossrail XTH12)
Monitoring of works for two sewer diversion shafts revealed only truncated natural London Clay(in the Wick sewer access chamber, near the cutting for the Blackwall Tunnel approach road and truncated natural gravels(in the Ham sewer access chamber west of Wick Lane. No archaeological remains were observed on either site and modern material and services sealed the truncated natural deposits.

August 2019:  Limmo Peninsula (Crossrail XRW10)
Four phases of archaeological excavation (two general watching briefs, an evaluation with two trenches and a targeted watching brief) carried out at the site of Crossrail Limmo Peninsula Shaft by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA), between 09/08/10 to 03/12/10. 20th-century made ground (10m OD) on structural remains of 19th-20th-century Thames Ironworks (3.5m OD) , over 19th-century made ground (2.6m OD), overlaying alluvial and natural deposits (0.49mOD). A walkover assessment was carried out on the non-listed built heritage at Instone Wharf, consisting of structures of low historical value associated with its former use as a freight terminal. Mooring posts mounting iron bollards, probably installed during the redevelopment of the site in the 1930s, were recorded, as were paved surfaces associated with railway lines which may date to the 1950s. An evaluation trench and subsequent targeted watching brief at Instone Wharf at the mouth of the Lea, exposed substantial brick walls related to the Thames Iron Works Offices and Workshops along with associated foundations and bases for machinery. Also uncovered were the lower portion of the Mast House and Mould Loft building and the south-easternmost slipway of the Iron Works, separated by a timber revetment.

August 2019:  Liverpool Street Worksite, Liverpool Street (Crossrail XSM10)
This archive presents the results of an archaeological investigation by MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology) at the site of the Crossrail Central Broadgate Ticket Hall, Liverpool Street, London EC2M, City of London (Museum of London (MoL) sitecode XSM10). The fieldwork comprised a series of watching briefs (targeted and general), evaluations and excavations, conducted between 20/02/11 and 09/10/15. These were undertaken in response to the redevelopment of the site as part of the Crossrail station at Liverpool Street: excavation of the site area to a depth of 25 metres below street level was necessary to provide below-ground concourses and booking halls and escalator access to the platforms. Documents in this archive also incorporate the results of archaeological investigation by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) at the Crossrail 11-12 Blomfield Street site, EC2, in the City of London (sitecodes XSL10/XTB12). These investigations comprised a series of watching briefs (Targeted and General), evaluations and excavations conducted between 24/05/2011 and 23/01/2014. The site lay 120m north of the Roman town boundary in a landscape dominated by a tributary of the Walbrook stream, which ran along the west edge of the site. The earliest Roman activity focused on draining the site sufficiently to allow burial and road building in the area. Extensive remains of an early 2nd- to 3rd-century AD west-east metalled road were traced across the site, along with several phases of roadside ditches. The road ran west from the main Roman road to the north (later Ermine Street) and may have led to the fort in the north-west corner of Londinium (built in stone after c AD 120). To the south of the road, seven 2nd-century AD inhumation burials, including three decapitations, and one cremation burial formed part of a burial ground in this waterlogged area.

August 2019:  Moorgate Shaft, 91-109 Moorgate (Crossrail XSP10)
Several watching briefs and evaluations took place at Moorgate Shaft under the sitecode XSP10. The work was commissioned by Crossrail and carried out by MOLA.

August 2019:  Old Oak Common (Crossrail XSU10)
Watching Brief and Evaluation - The archaeological works were carried out intermittently from March 2011 until April 2015 and comprised Trial Trenching, Targeted and General Watching Briefs. These took place during the demolition and remodelling of a former Motive Power Depot to create a maintenance depot and stabling facilities for Bombardier Rail who will be responsible for the maintenance and servicing of Crossrail traction and rolling stock. The depot, which was designed by the Great Western Railway's chief locomotive superintendent J. C. Churchward was an important component of, what was at the time, one of the country's most innovative railways. As the first of a number of new locomotive depots built by the Great Western Railway during the Churchward era, the layout of Old Oak Common served as the template for those that followed. The majority of which were closed and demolished in the late 1960s. Until its closure in 2009 the Old Oak Common Depot represented the last remaining 'factory' repair facility on the former GWR network. The below ground remains of a number of structures were uncovered and recorded during the project. These included parts of a large brick built turntable pit, sections of a brick built engine shed as well as a number of below ground brick built inspection pits and the remains of a Second World War Air raid shelter. Non-Listed Built Heritage Recording Report - During 2010 and 2011, Oxford Archaeology, in partnership with Ramboll (OA Ramboll, Crossrail contract C254) undertook a programme of non-listed built heritage recording (NLBH) at Old Oak Common Train Maintenance Depot in Acton, London, on behalf of Crossrail.

August 2019:  Paddington (Crossrail XSD10)
In September 2012 Oxford Archaeology/Ramboll (OAR) carried out an archaeological field evaluation in Eastbourne Terrace, Paddington, City of Westminster, London W2. The fieldwork was undertaken on behalf of Crossrail Ltd during works related to the expansion of the present Paddington Station to incorporate a new ticket hall, platforms and entrance for the Crossrail Line. The evaluation, consisting of two machine dug test pits, identified substantial made ground deposits with evidence for a Holocene tufa deposit. This report details archaeological work undertaken by Oxford Archaeology/Ramboll during 2014 in connection with Crossrail works at Paddington New Yard, City of Westminster, London W9. The site lies just to the west of the newly constructed western portal for the Crossrail tunnels (Royal Oak Portal). The archaeological works comprised a mixture of trial trenching, and Targeted and General Watching Briefs. These took place during the construction of an elevated bus deck for the Westbourne Park bus garage and concrete batching plant as well as track realignment, and drainage for the Crossrail tunnel approaches. The well-preserved below ground remains of a number of structures were uncovered and recorded during the project. These included brick-built turntable pits, the walls of engine sheds and below-ground inspection pits, as well as sections of the Marcon Sewer. All of the remains related either to the Great Western Railway's locomotive department workshops and stabling sheds which were present on the site from c.1853 to 1907, or subsequent developments of the site by the GWR and their successor bodies. These remains can be reasonably well-dated by documentary and cartographic sources. The depot, which was designed by the Great Western Railway's Chief Engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his Locomotive Superintendent Daniel Gooch, was an important component of, what was at the time, one of the most innovative railways in the world. The national and international significance of the Paddington to Bristol section of the Great Western Railway is shown by the fact that it was considered for UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2000. Watching Brief - During 2010 and 2011, Oxford Archaeology, in partnership with Ramboll (OA Ramboll, Crossrail contract C254) undertook a programme of watching brief at Paddington Station London, on behalf of Crossrail.

August 2019:  Paddington Integrated Project (PIP), Paddington Station (Crossrail XSE10)
A programme of archaeological investigations were undertaken by Oxford Archaeology/Ramboll UK (OAR), in the vicinity of Paddington Station, City of Westminster, London W2. The intermittent watching brief works, which were carried out as part of the Paddington Integrated Project (PIP) Crossrail works, commenced in September 2010 and continued through to July 2012. Deposits of Brickearth were observed during the bulk excavation of the Triangle Site (east of Bishops Bridge). This geological deposit was seen overlaying an extensive (up to 2.5 m thick) sequence of gravels. These deposits were identified as Pleistocene river terrace deposits (Lynch Hill Gravels), which form part of the natural geology in this part of London. Several brick built structures and other remains associated with the Great Western Railway's Paddington Goods Yards and Paddington Station were recorded during the project, including sections of a cobbled roadway made up of granite setts, uncovered beneath the modern concrete slab at the Triangle Site and at the eastern end of the Upper London Street Deck Site. Other archaeological works included the monitoring of the demolition of the Milk Ramp, retaining walls and the removal of an extensive cobbled surface during utility trench works behind Platform 12. All of these remains were integral elements of the Paddington Station complex and part of what was an important component of the Great Western Railway and one of the earliest major railway termini to survive in Britain.

August 2019:  Plumstead Portal (Crossrail XSW11)
This archive describes the archaeological evaluation and watching brief work carried out at the Plumstead Portal site by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA). The North Woolwich portal is located within the existing railway corridor of the former North London Line (NLL), between Factory Road and Albert Road, in the London Borough of Newham, National Grid Reference 542700 180000. All fieldwork was conducted between 11/04/12 and 09/06/14 and supervised by Portia Askew (MOLA Supervisor), Virgil Yendell (MOLA Senior Geoarchaeologist) and Jason Stewart (MOLA Geoarchaeologist), and included the following: The two evaluation trenches showed natural sands and gravels overlain by peats and alluvial clays. The surface of the Pleistocene\Early Holocene deposits indicated a series of braided river channels within a low-lying area on the western margins of a main channel. A borehole survey showed this channel to be over 200m wide and c.3m deep. This feature would have formed a major part of the floodplain landscape from the Early Holocene and probably became a major drainage feature when the other Holocene channels to the west became abandoned. It is possible that the channel forms an abandoned arm of a former course of the Great Breach Dyke, which existed from the Early Holocene period into the Bronze Age. A Mesolithic land surface was identified with rising sea levels leading to widespread peat formation by the early Neolithic into the Bronze Age, Within the peat deposits were worked timbers which may have formed parts of a structure, possibly a trackway constructed to access or traverse the wetlands.

August 2019:  Pudding Mill Lane (Crossrail XSK10)
A watching brief was carried out under Crossrail contract C261 Archaeology Early East, three boreholes and seven trial pits all within the confines of the Bulk Supply Point, Pudding Mill Lane were investigated. Natural geology in the form of Shepperton/Lea Valley Gravel was recorded across the site in the boreholes. The gravel surface ranged was slightly lower in the western corner of the site. The very edge of the gravel island appears to have been located in north possibly north east dropping off into lower lying channel areas. Low lying organic deposits were identified to the south and an alder tree trunk was cored at the base of the sequence to the south west of site alongside the present course of the River Lea. There is a variable thickness of alluvium onsite but the degree to which these deposits were contaminated or disturbed/redeposited could not wholly be ascertained as part of the watching brief. A Victorian/Edwardian Staffordshire Blue brick surface possibly related to the river wall construction was located in the western corner of the site and a cobbled surface with narrow gauge railing lines running through it in an east to west orientation was recorded to the centre of the site along with a buried storage tank. These are all likely to be related to the lampworks or soap works. A general watching brief during ground reduction and removal of contaminated deposits at the Crossrail C261 Pudding Mill Lane portal, in the area of the National Grid bulk supply point, recorded a Holocene alluvial sequence, an ephemeral wattle structure of uncertain date and post-medieval cut features and foundations relating to the industrial use of the site from the 19th century. Two Parish boundary marker stones were also recorded within the alluvium. Targeted watching brief carried out at the Pudding Mill Lane Portal as part of the Crossrail project, including Cut and Cover tunnel Sections 2B and 3, a coffer dam in the river Lea, a grout shaft, and observations made during a general watching brief carried out during enabling works. Holocene alluvium was recorded across the site.

August 2019:  Service Diversion North of Woolwich Portal, Albert Road, Factory Road (Crossrail XSV11)
A general watching brief was undertaken by MOLA at the North Woolwich Portal worksite which consisted of utilities diversions centred around Albert Road and Factory Road. This work was undertaken as part of a wider programme of assessment to quantify the archaeological implications of railway development proposals along the Crossrail route. The North Woolwich portal site lies within an Archaeological Priority Area. There are no scheduled monuments or listed buildings within the site. Underlying the tarmac surface, modern make-up varied in depth from 0.70m to 2.5m below ground level. Generally, trenches excavated to a depth of 2.0m and deeper revealed alluvial soils under modern made ground and tarmac. No archaeological remains were exposed within the shallow sequences. A minerogenic alluvium and peat sequence was recorded beneath modern made ground and tarmac in the deeper trenches which were excavated to a depth of c3.0-4.0m below ground level. The potential for palaeoenvironmental and topographic evidence within the alluvium and peat sequence was moderate to high. However, fieldwork has demonstrated that little archaeology remains within the deeper alluvial sequences. Timbers preserved within the peat deposits were of no archaeological significance, representing driftwood preserved within the marginal wetland. No archaeological structures or associated features indicative of human occupation were observed.

August 2019:  Service Diversion VDP, Victoria Dock Road, Seagull Lane (Crossrail XSX11)
Archaeological watching briefs carried out by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) on the Crossrail Victoria Dock Portal worksite, which consisted of utilities diversions centred around Victoria Dock Road and Seagull Road. Generally, trenches were excavated to a depth of 2.0m. Natural terrace gravels were overlain by thick peat deposits sealed by a horizon of alluvial clay. All deposits were archaeologically sterile. The sequence was sealed by modern made ground and the concrete and tarmac of the current road and pavement surfaces. Three trial trenches and a targeted watching brief afforded the opportunity to record and sample the sequence above the Pleistocene Thames gravels (from 3.3m below OD). The sequence consisted of potentially early Holocene river meandering to tidal creek formation at the base to prehistoric wood peats before rising sea level created the later, probably historic, estuarine floodplain. Of interest is the evidence for a fluvial or extreme weather, event at the eastern end of the site. No artefacts or structures were recovered.

August 2019:  Stepney Green (Crossrail XRV10)
Stepney Green Shaft - Evaluation and Site monitoring exposed small prehistoric truncated features with very abraded late Bronze Age or Iron Age pot (not retained). There were NO Roman or earlier medieval finds. Substantial remains of Worcester House, including brick foundations of King John's Tower, a late 15th-c or 16th-c defensible gatehouse and ranges of rooms from the Tudor-Stuart Courtyard mansion, were also seen. Stepney Green Shafts - Excavation and targeted watching briefs on Late-medieval and Tudor Common Sewer, Canalised round moated aristocratic manor house, converted to a baptist college in the early 19th century. TWB on remains of Congregational Church and attached school, 19th- and early 20th century houses and small factories. Significant finds include fine Tudor glassware, leather footwear and bowling ball and a medieval rowel spur. Stepney Green shafts and Stepney City Farm watching briefs - A number of watching briefs on Stepney City Farm, and on an enlarged worksite area of the Crossrail shaft, exposed a series of walls and a culvert (in line with one found in 1970s) made from 2-inch thick bricks

August 2019:  Tottenham Court Road (Crossrail TCG09)
The Tottenham Court Road archive includes data from both field evaluation and building recording. A group of non-Listed buildings located to the south of the Astoria Theatre were recorded in December 2009 prior to demolition. The earliest building was formally a 19th-century brick-built warehouse (constructed 1877-85 by R L Roumieu and A Aitchison, completed by R A Roumieu) belonging to the Crosse and Blackwell Company who produced pickles and sauces in a factory in Soho Square. This building, 12 Sutton Row, is known to have been linked by a walkway over the street to the Astoria to the north, itself formerly a warehouse and part of the food factory. Its appearance had been much altered; the original Gothic arched loops and windows were replaced and the whole façade onto Charing Cross Road re-rendered, although the proportions of the original façade remained as did a turret with a spire in the NE corner of the building.

August 2019:  Tottenham Court Road Station (Crossrail XRX10)
Watching Brief - During 2010 to 2012, Oxford Archaeology, in partnership with Ramboll (OA Ramboll, Crossrail contract C254) undertook an archaeological watching brief at Tottenham Court Road Station London, on behalf of Crossrail. A post medieval brick clamp and post medieval road surfaces were revealed. Test pit evaluation - During June and July 2010, Oxford Archaeology/Gifford (OAG) conducted out a test pit evaluation at Tottenham Court Road Western Ticket Hall in London. The fieldwork was undertaken on behalf of Crossrail in advance of demolition of a number of buildings and the planned construction of a Western Ticket Hall for Crossrail within the area. The evaluation revealed extensive quarrying of the site dating to the late 17th - early 18th century. In one Test Pit adjacent to Great Chapel Street a Late 17th century brick structure was revealed. Residual Roman pottery in a test pit to the north of Diadem Court may indicate Roman remains in the locality. Excavation - During September and October 2010, Oxford Archaeology/Gifford (OAG) carried out a detailed archaeological excavation on a block of land between Great Chapel Street and Dean Street, Westminster, London. The fieldwork was undertaken on behalf of Crossrail on the site of the future Tottenham Court Road Western Ticket Hall. The excavation revealed 17th century quarrying activity, which was subsequently infilled and built over and by the late 17th century on the western side of the site a brick building had been constructed. Associated with the 17th century occupation were numerous deposits, which had then been truncated by later brick 18th- to 20th-century deposits and structures.

August 2019:  Westbourne Park and Royal Oak Stations (Crossrail XSI10)
A series or archaeological investigations were undertaken on land comprising sites at Westbourne Park and Royal Oak Portal. The work consisted of an intermittent watching brief program, with two main phases; the initial works for the guide / diaphragm walls, which took place between July-September 2010; and subsequently, the ground reduction works, which occured between February and June 2011. Oxford Archaeology/Gifford (OAG) carried out the fieldwork on behalf of Crossrail. The investigations revealed only minimal survival of significant archaeological remains. At the Royal Oak Portal site the main findings were of a scour or channel feature, identified during the watching brief along the Royal Oak Cutting, cut through the London Clay and infilled with a series of cold climate Pleistocene deposits and a possible warm climate interglacial deposit. A channel cut, filled with gleyed silt clay deposits, was identified within upper part of the sequence possible representing a former later channel of the river Westbourne.

August 2019:  Whitechapel Station (Crossrail XSH10)
Three evaluation trenches were opened at the Cambridge Heath worksite (located to the E of Brady Street, TQ 3486 8195), while watching briefs were conducted at both that site and the Essex Wharf worksite (on the N side of Durward Street, TQ 3461 8196). Natural Taplow terrace gravels were recorded at each borehole location between 3.25 and 4.90m below street level. In the extreme eastern edge of the gardens, waterlain deposits were recorded possibly from an undated ditch or paloechannel. Immediately to the north two phases of brick floor, possibly delineating yard surfaces and associated deposits were exposed in a starter pit. One particular context containing fine Chinese porcelain, a wig curler and imported German stoneware gives us a snapshot of daily life at the time. A subsequent borehole suggested that substantial brick foundations survived to a considerable depth in this area, most likely associated with 18th-19th century terraced buildings that had been levelled following World War II.

August 2019:  Scottish Archaeological Internet Reports - Updated
Scottish Archaeological Internet Reports (SAIR) is an Open Access publication which was established in 2000 by a consortium comprising the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, Historic Scotland and the Council for British Archaeology. Volumes 83 to 86 have been added to the archive and include reports on a Plague burial ground in Leith, excavations in west Edinburgh, the mesolithic on the North Barr River, and a cist burial at Balbridie.

August 2019:  St Mary's Primary School, Ascupart Street, Southampton. Archaeological Evaluation (SOU1565) (OASIS ID: wessexar1-110217)
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned to undertake an archaeological evaluation within the playing fields at St Marys Primary School. The investigations revealed extensive post-medieval and modern disturbance, presumably associated with the construction and realignment of the railway line which previously ran through the site. Three trenches each contained a large pit of middle Saxon date.

August 2019:  Land at Bidwell West (Houghton Regis North 2), Central Bedfordshire: Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-317895)
The earliest evidence for human activity was located on the crest of the chalk scarp in the southern part of the site and dates to the Early Neolithic. This comprised a small pit containing pottery, flint flakes, burnt hazelnut shells and charcoal. At the foot of the scarp there was a more substantial feature cut by a small ditch that provided artefactual evidence for Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age activity. Confirming geophysical survey results, the evaluation demonstrated the presence of an Iron Age and a Roman settlement at the northern edge of the site; beyond the site, these had previously been investigated as part of the evaluation for the A5/M1 Link Road. The site of a second Roman settlement was confirmed just north of Thorn Road, east of Thorn Spring. The remains of a medieval open field system, comprising blocks of parallel furrows on varying alignments, were encountered across the northern and central parts of the site. A sequence of ditches parallel and to the south of Thorn Road, marking the edge of an area of common land, may date from the late medieval period. This open landscape was subsequently enclosed in the post-medieval and modern periods.

August 2019:  Land adjacent to M1, Courteenhall, Northamptonshire: Geophysical Survey (OASIS ID: headland5-328784)
Headland Archaeology (UK) Ltd undertook a geophysical (magnetometer) survey of a 5 hectare site adjacent to the M1 at Courteenhall, Northamptonshire, to provide information on the archaeological potential of the site in advance of the construction of a proposed poultry shed and associated infrastructure. The survey has not identified any anomalies of any archaeological potential with the dataset dominated by linear anomalies reflecting medieval and/or post medieval ploughing, land division and modern land drainage. A service pipe has been identified in the south of the site. Therefore, on the basis of the geophysical survey, the archaeological potential of the site is assessed as low, corroborating the results of the Desk-Based Heritage Assessment.

August 2019:  Pond at Southampton Sports Centre, Southampton. Archaeological Watching Brief (SOU1747)
The Archaeology Unit of Southampton City Council carried out a watching brief on groundworks for the construction of a pond at Southampton Sports Centre. The site lay in an Area of Archaeological Potential identified by Southampton City Council and a number of prehistoric finds had been made in the area. The area had been subject to level reduction for a sports pitch in the early 20th century. This would have removed any archaeology that had previously been present and no archaeological evidence was observed.

August 2019:  Archaeologia Cambrensis
Archaeologia Cambrensis has been published annually by the Cambrian Archaeological Association (CAA) since its foundation in 1846. The journal covers a wide range of subjects relating to the history and archaeology of Wales and the Marches. The contents of volumes 149 (2000) onwards are available here on the ADS website, with the exception of the three most recently published volumes.

August 2019:  Acorn Business Centre, 1-16 Empress Road, Southampton. Archaeological Watching Brief and Geoarchaeological Evaluation (SOU1678)
The Archaeology Unit of Southampton City Council carried out archaeological investigations at the Acorn Business Centre in 2014 and 2015. The purpose of the fieldwork was to record the deposits that survived at the site and to take cored samples of the prehistoric peat for analysis and dating. The drilling of piles and the excavation of ground beam slots were observed, with Museum of London Archaeology taking a window sample through the below-ground deposits.

August 2019:  2-8 Queensway, Southampton. Archaeological Evaluation (SOU1648) (OASIS ID: wessexar1-170329)
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Hampshire and Regional Property Group Ltd on behalf of PMC Construction and Development Services Ltd to undertake a programme of archaeological trial trenching. The evaluation identified no evidence for archaeological remains. A small assemblage of post-medieval finds, as well as a single medieval pottery sherd, were recovered from the made-ground deposits. This absence of evidence is likely to reflect the high level of post-medieval truncation recorded across the site.

August 2019:  Tanners Brook School, Southampton. Archaeological Watching Brief (SOU1705)
The Archaeology Unit of Southampton City Council carried out a watching brief in February and March 2016 on groundworks for the construction of a new classroom at Tanners Brook School. Four features were found cutting into the gravel; three pits and a possible ditch. All contained small amounts of burnt flint, and a prehistoric date is likely. The features were sealed by early modern deposits that included 19th century domestic finds. A few fragments of Anglo-Norman and High Medieval pottery suggest the area was ploughed and manured in the 12th to 14th centuries.

August 2019:  214 Bursledon Road, Southampton. Archaeological Watching Brief (SOU1742)
An archaeological watching brief was conducted by Southampton City Council Archaeology unit in January 2017 during the excavation of foundation trenches. Nothing of certain archaeological significance was found. The only possible archaeological feature was a hollow that contained a few burnt flints. The topsoil was checked for finds and no pre-20th century artifacts were found.

August 2019:  St Anne's Catholic School, 3 Rockstone Place, Southampton, Hampshire. Historic Building Recording and Watching Brief. (SOU1797)
Cotswold Archaeology was commissioned by Kendall Kingscott to undertake a historic building recording prior to repair works to the building and a watching brief during the initial phase of works. The building dates to the 1830s and was initially constructed as a residential property as part of a group of three terrace dwellings. The building has four split level storeys with a basement and has since become part of the adjacent St Anne's Catholic School.

August 2019:  Land off Newton Road, North Petherton, Somerset. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-322209)
In December 2017, Cotswold Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation. A possible prehistoric ring ditch was recorded in the south-eastern part of the site, and an area of intensive late prehistoric/Roman activity was recorded in the north-western part of the site. The evaluation also recorded a broad scattering of post-medieval/modern and undated ditches.

August 2019:  Land at Riverton Road, Puriton, Somerset. Archaeological Excavation.
A programme of archaeological investigation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology between August and October 2017. The majority of the features dated to the Middle to Late Iron Age. The Roman period was represented by two parallel ditches, a probable cremation pit, a scatter of isolated pits and a ditch, along with recutting of at least one of the ditches within the Iron Age enclosure complex. A number of post-Roman features were identified.

August 2019:  Land at Brue Farm, Highbridge, Somerset. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-358280)
In January 2019, Cotswold Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation of land at Brue Farm, Highbridge, Somerset. The evaluation recorded deep alluvial layers across the site. These deposits were cut by a series of Roman ditches and a posthole. The ditches may be former field boundaries, although it is possible that some of them may be parts of enclosures. Associated briquetage fragments are indicative of mid to late Roman period salt extraction, although there was no evidence for industrial-scale extraction. It is likely the Roman features recorded by the present evaluation represent outlying activity associated with the previously-recorded Alstone Lake Settlement Site, on an area of marginal wetland.

August 2019:  Cokerhurst Farm, Bridgwater, Somerset. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-355396)
In April 2018, Cotswold Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation of land at Cokerhurst Farm, Bridgwater, Somerset. The evaluation recorded three ditches in the eastern part of the site, potentially forming part of an enclosure. These features contained late prehistoric/Early Roman pottery and probably represent the continuation of Late Iron Age/Roman activity recorded previously to the immediate east of the present site. The evaluation also recorded two late post-medieval/modern ditches and a probable clay extraction pit.

August 2019:  Land at 12-18 Hulse Road, Southampton. Archaeological Watching Brief (SOU1689) (OASIS ID: wessexar1-230201)
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned to undertake an archaeological watching brief during the initial groundworks associated with the proposed redevelopment of land at 12 - 18 Hulse Road, Southampton, Hampshire. The archaeological watching brief identified no archaeological features, deposits, or artefacts. Given the disturbed nature of the site, it is probable that the archaeological horizon has had a large degree of disturbance and may not be present.

August 2019:  Land adjacent to Southampton Solent University, Southampton. Archaeological Watching Brief (SOU1664) (OASIS ID: wessexar1-251210)
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned to undertake an archaeological watching brief during the initial groundworks associated with the redevelopment of land adjacent to Southampton Solent University. The watching brief recorded no evidence of any significant archaeological features, deposits or finds beyond the survival of a shallow brick wall foundation and a shallow north/south orientated ditch which was located at the north-western edge of trench 9.

August 2019:  Derbyshire Archaeological Journal - Updated
The Derbyshire Archaeological Society was founded in 1878 to encourage interest in the County’s archaeology and natural history. The Society was initially called the Derbyshire Archaeological and Natural History Society but the natural history side was dropped in 1961. The Society first published its Journal in 1879 and it has been published every year since. Each volume of the journal contains a collection of edited papers on various topics relating to both the history and the archaeology of the area. Volume 134 (2014) is now fully available.

August 2019:  Transactions of the Cumberland & Westmorland Antiquarian & Archaeological Society - Updated
Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society was founded in 1866. The Society first published its Transactions (TCWAAS) in 1874. Fifteen volumes were published up to 1900 and from then it became an annual publication. Each volume of TCWAAS contains a collection of edited papers on various topics relating to both the history and the archaeology of the area. Volume 14 (series 3) (2014) is now fully available.

August 2019:  Trypillia mega-sites of the Ukraine
The Anglo-Ukrainian Project 'early urbanism in Europe?: the case of the Trypillia megasites of Ukraine' arose out of the conundrum of what are currently the largest sites in the 4th millennium BC in Eurasia - both larger and earlier than the earliest cities in the Near East. A partnership was established between the Institute of Archaeology, Kyiv (Dr. Mykhailo Videiko) and Durham University (Professor John Chapman) to seek funds for a multi-disciplinary investigation of a single megasite - Nebelivka, Novoarkhangelsk District, Kirovograd Domain. The Project received funding for a trial season in 2009 and further major funding for a four-year Project (2012-5).

July 2019:  10-12 Queensway, Southampton. Archaeological Evaluation. (SOU1639) (OASIS ID: wessexar1-164272)
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Hampshire and Regional Property Group Ltd on behalf of PMC Construction and Development Services Ltd to undertake a programme of archaeological trial trenching at 10-12 Queensway, Southampton, Hampshire. The evaluation consisted of three trenches, which all encountered modern and post-medieval deposits beneath the concrete floor of the warehouse building.

July 2019:  HE7238 - Stonehenge Southern World Heritage Site Survey
A Historic England project to improve our understanding of the archaeological resource of the Stonehenge World Heritage Site south of the A303 road. Comprising aerial photographic analysis, analytical earthwork survey, geophysical survey, excavation and analysis, the project fieldwork ran between autumn 2015 and spring 2016. This archive covers the excavation element of the project.

July 2019:  Former Railway Bridge of the Barnsley to Barnetby Railway: Photographic Survey
The works have been undertaken in advance works for the Lincolnshire Lakes Flood Alleviation scheme. This proposed flood defence improvement scheme comprises multiple locations immediately adjacent to the River Trent to the west of the Scunthorpe area, between the village of Susworth to the south and Amcotts to the north. The scheme has the potential to impact on the surviving remains of the bridge on the right (eastern) bank of the River Trent north of Burringham.

July 2019:  Land off Oldmixon Road, Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset: Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-355325)
An evaluation was carried out on site in March and April 2018 by Cotswold Archaeology; 22 trenches were excavated. Five trenches contained archaeology mainly comprising ditches and pits of Roman date. A wall in trench 12 is likely to be Roman, having been sealed by a layer of alluvium containing Roman material. The remaining 17 trenches were devoid of archaeological features..

July 2019:  Early Medieval Atlas Projects
The Early Medieval Atlas is a long-term collaborative venture which is collating and analysing spatial evidence for early medieval Britain. Major funding has been provided by the Leverhulme Trust since 2005 for a series of substantial research programmes, with recent thematic enquiries including civil defence and warfare, administration and legal landscapes, travel and communication in Anglo-Saxon England. Digital resources produced by these research projects are being archived with the Archaeological Data Service in a rolling programme, with the aim of making these data accessible to both researchers and the public.

July 2019:  The Old Kennels, Cirencester Park. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-329939)
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in October 2018 at The Old Kennels, Cirencester Park, Gloucestershire. Six trenches were excavated. The evaluation identified four ditches, six pits, a grave and a wall, concentrated in the central and southern areas of the site. While some features can be reasonably assigned to the Roman period, the majority of features remained undated. The evaluation identified a grave containing an infant burial. The location of the grave adjacent to the projected course of the Fosse Way suggests a Roman date and a possible western expansion of known funerary activity of this period flanking the road. Two nearby pits contained eight in situ Roman vessels between them, however there was no evidence of cremated or articulated human remains associated with either pit. A ditch aligned parallel to the Roman road and containing a sherd of Roman pottery was also identified. A group of four pits at the south of the site and a rectilinear enclosure in the centre of the site had distinctive dark fills and may have been contemporary, although no finds were recovered from any of these features. One of the pits was cut by the construction of a stone wall, which although parallel with the Roman ditch and the Fosse Way, was likely to have been later in date.

July 2019:  Historic Graffiti on the Tower of St Oswald's Church, Filey, North Yorkshire
During a visit to the roof of the tower of St Oswald's Church in Filey it was noted that extensive, well preserved graffiti covers the lead roof. A rapid consultation with a number of colleagues concluded that the quantity and diversity of these remains appeared to be quite rare and of a particularly early date for survival on a lead roof. At this point it was suggested that the graffiti on the tower roof at St Oswald's could be used to as the test study to develop guidance notes for a methodology for recording graffiti. In conjunction with the production of the guidelines a study of the graffiti would also be made in order to try to place some form of historic interpretation on them. This report and collection represents the results of that study. The collection comprises the project design and project report, a catalogue listing the inscribed graffiti by panel, several very large orthophoto files, and the photography used to create these via a structure-from-motion model of the church roof. The project compared the traditional 2D rectified photography with the 3D Structure-from-Motion approach. This allowed a direct comparison of the two methods to evaluate the cost, speed and accuracy of results. It was also proposed to undertake an additional comparative assessment of part of the graffiti using digital images from a smart phone, a compact digital camera and a 'professional' high resolution digital SLR.

July 2019:  Archaeologia Aeliana: Journal of the Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle upon Tyne
Archaeologia Aeliana is the journal of the Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle upon Tyne, which is the oldest provincial antiquarian society in the country, founded in 1813. The Society has always had an interest in archaeology and antiquities generally. Its particular focus, however, from the beginning, has been the North East of England (the historic counties of Northumberland and Durham), centred on Newcastle upon Tyne. It has also always had a special interest in Hadrian's Wall, and the journal has carried many important papers and reports on the Wall.

July 2019:  SOU 1780, 11 Lawn Road, Southampton, Hampshire: Archaeological Watching Brief Report (OASIS ID: wessexar1-311307)
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Sam Lawn Road Ltd to carry out an archaeological watching brief in order to fulfil a planning condition (ref. 16/00740/FUL) relating to the demolition and redevelopment of a new building at 11 Lawn Road, Southampton, Hampshire, centred on National Grid Reference 442761 113637. 11 Lawn Road occupies a 0.6 hectare rectangular parcel of land, on a terrace slightly above Lawn Road, the ground sloping gently down from the north. The works monitored included the excavation of a large attenuation tank, a soak-away and the subsequent removal of overburden from the Site, followed by the excavation of footings for the new building. In situ brickearth deposits were noted across the Site, overlying gravel. A single flint flake was the only pre-18th-century find. However, the watching brief located a buried land surface containing bricks in the north of what was probably a garden associated with Portswood House, built in 1776 and demolished in 1852. The ground surface was subsequently raised by up to 1.2 m in the north of the Site, probably when Lawn Road was laid out, the redeposited gravels sealing the buried soil. Features likely to have been associated with the later 19th century villa that occupied the site, which was demolished after a bomb strike in 1944, included two brick-lined wells. Features of 20th-century comprised a brick-built interceptor tank, a well and the concrete footings and wall of a cellar.

July 2019:  Eastacombe Chapel, Tawstock, Devon: Heritage Statement (OASIS ID: acarchae2-348718)
A heritage statement was prepared to support a Listed Building Consent application for the conversion of the Grade II Listed former Eastacombe Chapel into a single residential dwelling. It was built in 1818 as a Baptist chapel, and has remained relatively unchanged. The principal later 20th-century alterations comprise the enlargement of the first-floor gallery and replacement of the associated stairs, along with the subdivision of a north extension into a kitchen and toilets.

July 2019:  Cockpit Hill, Cullompton, Devon: Building Recording and Archaeological Observation (OASIS ID: acarchae2-271681)
Historic building recording and archaeological monitoring and recording was undertaken by AC archaeology during January 2017 and July 2018 at 8 Cockpit Hill, Cullompton, Devon (ST 0207 0704). The archaeological monitoring of groundworks recorded the remains of part of a 16th to 18th century stone structure with associated cobbled surface. A separate but contemporary probable stone-built garderobe pit and a 19th century rubbish pit were also exposed. The building remains correspond well with part of a projecting rear range shown on a 1633 map of Cullompton, while the historic building recording demonstrated that part of the existing property was also of probable 17th century origin.

July 2019:  Sitch Farm, Wormhill, Derbyshire: Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: archaeol5-331632)
Archaeological Research Services Ltd was commissioned by Mr Nigel Moseley to undertake an archaeological evaluation in the form of test pitting at Sitch Farm, Wormhill, Derbyshire. A planning application for the erection of a steel framed agricultural building to provide cover for a midden area at Sitch Farm was originally submitted in 2016, but later withdrawn. The archaeological evaluation was undertaken as part of the preparations to re-submit the planning application. The test pits were situated at the north-east edge of a known Neolithic settlement site, which is characterised by a dense scatter of flint and chert implements.

July 2019:  The Sword in Early Medieval Northern Europe: Experience, Identity, Representation
This archive presents databases which accompany the book 'The Sword in Early Medieval Northern Europe: Experience, Identity, Representation (Brunning, 2019). The publication explores perceptions of swords in Anglo-Saxon England and Scandinavia during the early medieval period using a multidisciplinary approach, encompassing artistic, archaeological and literary sources. The databases contain information on weapon motifs, sword burials and kennings; and analysis of the three datasets formed the basis for individual chapters. The final chapter combines the results of these analyses to offer broader conclusions about the significance of swords in early medieval thought and society.

July 2019:  Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment: Cornwall South Coast
The Cornwall South Coast Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment Survey is part of a national programme funded by Historic England. A desk-based assessment of the historic environment was conducted and potential threats to heritage assets were identified in order to design a strategy for a future field survey of at risk areas. The project updated and added new records to the Historic Environment Records for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Devon County Council and the City of Plymouth. Overall the project added, updated or amended 2,737 records; the new sites created totalled 2,294 for Cornwall, 82 for Devon and 227 for Plymouth. Research priorities and themes identified by the desk-based assessment are presented and specific sites and areas which would benefit from further research or work are summarised in the report.

June 2019:  Land at Crisps Farm, Church Lane, Austrey, Warwickshire: Magnetometer Survey (OASIS ID: archaeol20-331904)
A geophysical survey, comprising detailed magnetometry, was carried out by Archaeological Surveys Ltd at Crisps Farm, to the south of Church Lane in Austrey, North Warwickshire. The results indicate a positive rectilinear anomaly that appears to relate to a former ditch-like feature, possibly an enclosure. It is located immediately west of an extant linear depression within the field, which is likely to relate to a former field boundary ditch. The possible enclosure may extend further west; however, its orientation becomes parallel with former ridge and furrow cultivation and, as a consequence, its continuation cannot be confidently determined. Several other positive linear, curvilinear and discrete anomalies have been located within the site and although they may relate to cut features, they are generally weak, poorly defined or lack a coherent morphology.

June 2019:  Open Access Archaeology Fund Archives

June 2019:  Woods Mill, Milltown, Glossop, Derbyshire. Archaeological Works (OASIS ID: centrefo4-336078)
Salford Archaeology was commissioned by Glossop Land Ltd to carry out a programme of archaeological works in advance of the development of the Woods Mill complex. The site is located at the eastern end of Glossop, Derbyshire and within the Howardtown Mill Conservation area. The mill complex was slowly expanded eastwards until, at its height, it was employing 8000 people and was the largest textile mill in Derbyshire. After the death of it’s founder, John Wood, in 1854, the mill entered a slow decline and was sold in 1919. Although the western half continued in use as a cotton mill, the eastern half was taken over by Volcrepe Rubber in 1932, who continued to operate on the site until 2002.

June 2019:  West Wycombe Park IT Cable, Buckinghamshire. Archaeological Intervention (oxfordar1-352979)
Between 27th March and 4th April 2018, Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief, monitoring the excavation of an IT cable trench at the east of West Wycombe Park, Buckinghamshire, for the National Trust. The fieldwork revealed a series of levelling and made-ground deposits for the existing road surfaces, overlying two 19th century wall foundations. Historic mapping suggests the walls relate to outbuildings and a boundary wall. No further archaeological remains were revealed.

June 2019:  Stag House Farm, Darlington, County Durham. Archaeological Building Recording (OASIS ID: archaeol3-320798)
An archaeological recording project was conducted in advance of proposed works at Stag House Farm, Darlington. A Photographic and drawn survey of the house and adjoining farm buildings was commissioned by West Park Ltd and undertaken by Archaeological Services Durham University.

June 2019:  42 Querns Lane, Cirencester, Gloucestershire. Archaeological Excavation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-351293)
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in September 2018 at 42 Querns Lane, Cirencester, Gloucestershire. Six test-pits were excavated. A Roman wall, gravel surfacing and demolition material was identified between 1.2m and 1.5m below the present ground level. A post-Roman robber cut, most probably targeting a Roman wall, was also identified sealed by reworked 'dark-earth'/post-medieval agricultural soils. No evidence for a previously identified 'Roman pavement' was identified in the north-east corner of the site.

June 2019:  The Manor, Brookers Hill, Shinfield, Berkshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-352952)
Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by Persimmon Homes Thames Valley to undertake a trial trench evaluation at The Manor, Brookers Hill, Shinfield in advance of the redevelopment of the site for housing. The work was undertaken in two phases; the first, in 2015, comprised the excavation of six trenches, and the second, undertaken in March 2018, a further eight trenches. No significant archaeological features were present within the trenches and no artefactual material was recovered.

June 2019:  Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route / Balmedie to Tipperty. Digital Appendices
This archive presents the Digital Appendices of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty Monograph, published with Oxbow Books; 'The Land was Forever: 15,000 Years in North-East Scotland'. The project was undertaken due to the construction of 58km of new road around the western periphery of Aberdeen, with archaeological trial trenching and mitigation excavations being undertaken between 2013 and 2016. The works revealed a landscape rich in archaeological remains, with nine sites identified, spanning the Late Upper Palaeolithic through to the post-medieval period.

June 2019:  Breedon Hill, Leicestershire: Geophysical surveys
This archive contains the results of gradiometer and earth resistance surveys undertaken at Breedon Hill, Leicestershire in February 2016. Breedon Hill is the site of one of the few Iron Age hillforts in the East Midlands - and one which, in its original form, ranked amongst the largest monuments of its type in the region. Subsequently, the hillfort interior witnessed multiple periods of monastic occupation from the last quarter of the 7th century, made visible by the important corpus of architectural sculpture dating to the late 8th and early 9th centuries. This project formed the basis of an undergraduate dissertation completed at Newcastle University in July 2016.

June 2019:  Beneath the Surface of Roman Republican Cities
This project deployed Ground-Penetrating Radar (henceforth GPR) survey alongside the study of ceramic assemblages across the full extent of two cities founded in this period - Interamna Lirenas founded as a colony in 312 BC and Falerii Novi founded by Rome in 241 BC (following Rome's razing of Falerii Veteres) to characterise their early development. Both sites were abandoned in the post-Roman period and now lie beneath agricultural land, hence they were available for total survey.

May 2019:  Darling Cottage, Manor Street, Dittisham, Devon. Building Recording (OASIS ID: acarchae2-288797)
A historic building survey of Darling Cottage was prepared during alterations to the property. The cottage is thought to date to the late 16th century and was a small two-storey building, perhaps with one or two rooms on each floor. There is evidence for a single primary fireplace on each floor. The building was extended in the mid-late 19th century, and this extension was further altered and expanded in the late 20th century, when other alterations were also made to the earlier structure.

May 2019:  Worcestershire Archaeology Research Reports

May 2019:  Mount Pleasant Farm, Wheldrake, York. Building Recording (OASIS ID: humblehe1-348509)
A historic building recording of Mount Pleasant Farm was undertaken by Humble Heritage Ltd in March 2019 to identify and document items of archaeological and architectural interest prior to the development of the agricultural buildings. The site was built as a farmstead with a courtyard plan, possibly in the early nineteenth century. It was comprehensively rebuilt in the second half of the nineteenth century, retaining a large threshing barn and two further buildings from the earlier phase.

May 2019:  Land off King Edward Street, Ashbourne, Derbyshire. Trial Trenching Evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar2-321455)
Oxford Archaeology (OA) North were commissioned by Orion Heritage Ltd to initially undertake a trial trenching evaluation of Land off King Edward Street, Ashbourne, Derbyshire (NGR SK 1797 4647). The evaluation confirmed the presence of structural remains relating to the mill, with floor surfaces and walls being identified.

May 2019:  Brooksby Quarry: Investigations of the incised channel
Investigations at Brooksby Quarry were carried out between April 2013 and November 2014 and included Electro Resistance Tomography (ERT) survey, borehole drilling (shell/auger and sonic), archaeological trenching, palaeoenvironmental sampling and Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dating sampling. The results have created ERT model(s) displaying the results and the incised channel of the Bytham River. Quartzite artefacts and environmental material including some pollen, small vertebrate remains, wood and plant macrofossils were recovered/ sampled from the investigations.

May 2019:  Williams Holdings, Grove, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-313495)
During October and November 2015, Oxford Archaeology carried out a trial trench evaluation on land at Williams Holdings. The evaluation was commissioned by Strutt and Parker LLP on behalf of Williams Grand Prix Engineering Ltd. The earliest feature uncovered was a securely dated ditch of middle Bronze Age date. Other prehistoric ditches were present within the western part of the site and were dated from the middle to late Iron Age. The majority of dated features belonged to a later Roman period settlement and a number of late medieval or post-medieval plough furrows were also identified.

May 2019:  Land South of A379, Newcourt, Exeter, Devon: Archaeological investigation
Archaeological investigations on land south of the A379, Newcourt, Exeter, identified activity of Mesolithic, Bronze Age, and post-medieval to modern date. The majority of features contained no dating evidence, but it is likely that many result from prehistoric activity on the site. Three pits, with holes dug into their bases, were identified as Mesolithic in origin, on the basis of two radiocarbon determinations from one of the pits (7050-6769 cal BC and 7036-6700 cal BC). A group of Bronze Age pottery, of 1625-1465 cal BC date, had been placed in a pit in the north-west of the site. A vessel deposited in a ditch in the south-east of the site is broadly of Middle Bronze Age date. A second ditch ran perpendicular to this ditch and was probably contemporary with it. Three round pits showing signs of burning - possibly from a domestic use such as an oven - were also revealed. Although undated, a prehistoric use is likely. Scattered across the whole excavation area were numerous pits and possible postholes; no structure or date could be ascertained for these.

April 2019:  Rhodes Building, Oriel College, Oxford. Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-347157)
Between March 2014 and January 2015, Oxford Archaeology undertook a watching brief during alterations to The Rhodes Building, Oriel College, Oxford. The majority of the deposits and structures encountered related to early 20th century backfilling of cellars belonging to the buildings demolished in advance of the re-development of the High Street frontage. Additional deposits encountered related to landscaping within St Mary's Quad and are likely to be contemporary with the construction of the Rhodes Building.

April 2019:  Marston House Farm, Marston Mongomery, Derbyshire: Building Survey (OASIS ID: cfaarcha1-345763)
CFA Archaeology Ltd has been commissioned on behalf of Lanpro Services and their clients, to survey what remains of two 19th-century outbuildings at Marston House Farm, Marston Montgomery, Derbyshire. The survey was needed to inform further investigations into earlier structures shown on a tithe map dated 1838. Unfortunately, one of the 19th-century outbuildings had been demolished (Building B) as part of the present development. The other outbuilding in its final phase was used as a cow house (Building A). The northern end of the cow house is constructed from coursed stone and appears to be a late 18th- or early 19th-century construction; however, no datable architectural features were recorded to confirm this. The southern end of the cow house is constructed from brick and it appears that during the latter part of the 19th-century the larger building seen on the tithe map was in part demolished and rebuilt in brick forming the current structure. Forming part of the same late 19th-century redevelopment of the site, a stable was also constructed to the south of the cow house possibly removing all traces of the earlier building.

April 2019:  The Plough Inn, Hathersage, Derbyshire: Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: archaeol5-329757)
Archaeological Research Services Ltd (ARS) was commissioned by Elliot Emery to undertake an Archaeological Watching Brief at The Plough Inn, Hathersage, Derbyshire. Planning permission for the proposed development: (Application Ref. No. NP/DDD/1117/1180) has not yet been was granted for the development of the site. The programme of archaeological works comprised an archaeological watching brief during any ground disturbance and/or ground works associated with construction of the shepherd's huts, landscaping, septic tank and all drainage and service trenches. Apart from natural geological layers and modern deposits associated with the modern Plough Inn, only three archaeological features were encountered: One foundation for a drystone wall, one likely quarry pit for sand, and one probable pit with unclear function. Alternatively, but less likely, the probable pit could be interpreted as part of the tail-race associated with a 17th century lead smelting complex known to have been present on site. The two encountered pits are likely industrial in nature, and may in some way relate to (or be part of) this industrial complex. These two features went out of use and were backfilled at some time, probably in the 19th century or the early 20th century. The drystone wall which was interpreted as the property boundary of the Plough Inn may have been erected at roughly the same time. The disuse and subsequent backfilling of the two pits and the erection of the drystone boundary wall is likely evidence for landscaping and shaping of the grounds around the Plough Inn taking place in the late 19th or early 20th century, and which was later continued with the construction of the modern car park.

April 2019:  Thames through Time. The Archaeology of the Gravel Terraces of the Upper and Middle Thames: The Medieval and Post-Medieval Periods AD 1000-2000
The fourth volume of the Thames through Time Series presents the results of a wide-ranging synthetic study that illuminates the past 1000 years of social, cultural, political and economic history of the Thames Valley. This final episode takes the story of the Thames Valley through the second millennium AD to provide a new narrative of the medieval and post-medieval period. This final volume begins with the end of Anglo-Saxon political power in Britain and continues through the turmoils of the Norman invasion, the Black Death and the reformation, onto the considerable economic and landscape changes brought about by the agricultural revolutions of the 17th and 18th centuries, and up to the massive population and technological expansions of the 20th century.

April 2019:  Isles of Scilly Designated Wrecks Interpretation
This project concerns the five designated wreck sites situated in the Isles of Scilly: Tearing Ledge, HMS Association, Bartholomew Ledges, HMS Colossus and the Wheel Wreck. The first phase of the project collected high resolution multi-beam data for each of the five sites. The second phase entailed production of photographs and video from four of the sites (not including HMS Colossus). The final phase was the creation of web-based virtual site tours for the Tearing Ledge, HMS Association, Bartholomew Ledges and the Wheel Wreck, and the enhancement and integration of the existing HMS Colossus virtual dive trail.

March 2019:  Field Evaluation at Green Acres, Minsterworth, Gloucestershire (OASIS ID: cotswold2-321985)
An archaeological field evaluation was undertaken in February 2018 at Green Acres, Main Road, Minsterworth, Gloucestershire. A total of five trenches was excavated.

March 2019:  King Alfred Way, Newton Poppleford, Devon. Archaeological Excavation (OASIS ID: acarchae2-196268)
A rare Neolithic ring ditch containing two graves with cremated human remains was uncovered during excavation at King Alfred Way, Newton Poppleford. An assemblage of Peterborough ware pottery, worked flint and radiocarbon dating indicate the main use of the site was during the Middle Neolithic period.

March 2019:  17 The Avenue, Cirencester, Gloucestershire: Watching Brief (OASIS ID: cotswold2-320283)
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology during groundworks associated with an extension to the front elevation of 17 The Avenue, Cirencester, Gloucestershire. Two parallel walls were identified during the watching brief. These structural elements are most likely associated with the continuation of a previously identified Roman building.

March 2019:  Land at Evesham Road, Nr Fladbury, Worcestershire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: headland3-236268)
Archaeological field evaluation was undertaken by Headland Archaeology on Land at Evesham Road, near Fladbury, Worcestershire. The investigation revealed possible later prehistoric settlement activity and later post-medieval and modern agricultural use of the land.

Volumes on A Cemetery at Lackford, Suffolk (1951); A Cemetery at Shudy Camps, Cambridgeshire (1936) and Recent Excavations in Anglo-Saxon Cemeteries in Cambridgeshire & Suffolk (1931) are included in the release.

March 2019:  Death, Burial and Identity: 3000 Years of Death in the Vale of Mowbray.
This volume is the first of three monographs that present the results of archaeological excavations between Leeming and Barton in North Yorkshire. The work took place between 2013 and 2017 as part of Highway England's upgrade of 19km of the A1 to motorway status. This first volume examines the extensive burial record from the road scheme - the excavations revealed 308 human burials at 14 locations, which ranged in date from the Early Bronze Age to the Anglo-Saxon period - and discusses the evidence in relation to what it can tell us about concepts of death, burial and identity and how these changed through time.

March 2019:  Land to Rear of Ebrington Arms May Lane Ebrington: Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-299975)
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in November 2017 at land to the rear of Ebrington Arms. Three trenches were excavated. Post-medieval furrows and the structural remains associated with a modern glasshouse depicted on the 1972 Ordnance Survey map were identified. An undated ditch was also recorded.

March 2019:  Barn West of Manor Farmhouse, Diddington, St Neots. Building Recording (OASIS ID: kdkarcha1-320902)
In July 2018, Historic Building Recording was carried out at the barn west of Manor Farmhouse, Diddington, St Neots, Cambridgeshire in order to fulfil a condition of planning permission for the conversion of the existing building into a dwelling. The farm has been part of the Thornhill estate since the 18th century and the barn in question may have been constructed on the site around the time that the land was acquired by the Thornhill family. It was an estate farm belonging to Diddington Hall, the site of the medieval Grimbald's or Grimbaud's Manor. The barn is a five bay timber framed structure dating to the late 17th or early 18th century. It has primary bracing, jowlposts and is weatherboarded. There is a queen strut roof, but the tiles have been removed. The inside of the building has a half height brick wall, built in the 20th century, which encompasses some of the timberwork behind. The southern end of the barn was sectioned off and given an upper floor in the 19th century. This is accessed by a staircase in the northeast corner. The other bays are partitioned from one another with modern timber. Within the central bay are the remains of a small brick structure of uncertain function that appears to have been built and demolished in the 20th century. Although the barn has been altered in the 19th and 20th centuries, much of its original fabric remains. Of particular interest is the high number of carpenters and apotropaic marks on several of the larger timbers.
