Land at West Buckland Junction, A361, Devon. Excavation

In June 2019, Cotswold Archaeology undertook an archaeological strip, map and sample excavation on land adjacent to the A361 West Buckland Junction, Devon. Two excavation areas with a combined area of 2,490 metres squared were excavated within the site. These areas were targeted upon features identified during a previous geophysical survey and trial trench evaluation.

The excavation recorded part of a rectilinear enclosure. No artefactual material was present, but an Early Roman radiocarbon date was obtained. The previous geophysical survey and evaluation results indicate that this rectilinear enclosure system continues north-westwards within the site, apparently forming a field system.

Also recorded were a small number of undated ditches and pits. The undated ditches were mainly on different alignments to both the Roman enclosure and the extant field system. Their provenance is unclear.
