Introduction

Land adjacent to Edward Massey Gardens, Garnall's Road, Gloucester. Archaeological Field Evaluation. (OASIS ID: borderar1-283628)

Border Archaeology Ltd (BA) was instructed by Gloucester City Homes to carry out a programme of Archaeological Field Evaluation of land adjacent to Edward Massey Gardens Garnall's Road, Matson, Gloucester, GL4 6JB. The aim of the project was to determine the location, extent, date, character, condition, significance, and quality of any surviving archaeological remains likely to be threatened by the proposed development, and to fully record the character of any such remains.

No deposits or features of archaeological significance were present on the site. It was apparent that the area had been much landscaped, presumably during construction of the surrounding housing estate. No finds of any date were present; while this may confirm that the site lay at some distance from any areas of archaeological activity, it is also possible that the degree of truncation evident on the site has removed any evidence that may have been present.
