Introduction

Land at 77 Bristol Road, Quedgeley, Gloucester. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-342329)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in October and November 2018 on land at 77 Bristol Road, Quedgeley, Gloucester.

The evaluation was undertaken to accompany a planning application made to Gloucester City Council for the demolition of an existing dwelling and the construction of two multi-storey apartment blocks and associated works. The proposed development area is approximately 0.07ha and comprises a former residential property and garden, including a small pond in the south-west of the site.

Two trenches were excavated. The evaluation has identified only limited archaeological remains within the site. Artefactual material was recovered from two deposits and the recovered material dates to the Roman and post-medieval periods. A Roman gully and pit were identified in Trench 2, within the eastern extent of the site. A post-medieval pond, correlating with historic cartographic sources, was also recorded in Trench 1, in the western part of the proposed development area.

Whilst no evidence of the Glevum to Abonae Roman road was identified during the evaluation, the Roman pit identified within Trench 2, and the gully that it truncates, most probably relate to the wider corpus of Roman activity known to exist within the vicinity of the proposed development area (as detailed in Section 2 above). These features could relate to 2nd to 4th-century agricultural or settlement activity, although the limited nature of the remains restricts interpretation at this stage.
