Introduction

Field Evaluation at Green Acres, Minsterworth, Gloucestershire (OASIS ID: cotswold2-321985)

Archaeology in February 2018 at Green Acres, Main Road, Minsterworth, Gloucestershire. A total of five trenches was excavated.

A shallow, sandy-gravel filled combe was identified running north/south adjacent and parallel to Watery Lane within which a Roman relict soil was identified. The soil was cut by Roman quarry pits, presumably exploiting the sands, gravels and clays in the area. The remains of a Roman field system were also identified in the western extent of the site. Pottery recovered from these deposits and features predominantly dates to the 3rd-4th century AD. Evidence for two medieval ditches, dating to the 12th-14th century AD, was revealed in the north-western extent of the site. Later activity is restricted to a 19th-20th century quarry pit in the east of the site and animal burials within the garden of Green Acres house. The remains of two undated postholes and two areas of tree root disturbance were also identified.
