Introduction

LIDL, Bishops Cleeve, Gloucestershire. Archaeological Excavation. (OASIS ID: cotswold2-379122)

An archaeological excavation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in October and November 2018 on land adjacent to the existing Lidl store at Bishops Cleeve, Gloucestershire. Two separate excavation areas, together amounting to 2.377m2, were excavated across the development area. The earliest features comprised a quarry pit, five shallow ditches, and a circular pit that were identified in the north-western part of the site (Area 1). These were found in association with pottery of Late Roman date and charred plant remains. A ditch and two pits of medieval date were revealed in the south-eastern part of the site (Area 2). A stone-lined well of probable post-medieval date was also recorded in Area 2; and a large post-medieval quarry pit was identified in Area 1. Several undated pits and postholes were identified in both excavation areas. Modern truncation, probably associated with the construction of the existing store, was encountered across the site.
