Abstract:
An archaeological excavation undertaken ahead of the redevelopment of Trinity School, Benwell, on the eastern side of the extra-mural area of Benwell Roman fort, revealed several phases of activity dating from the Roman period onwards. The earliest feature, a metalled hollow-way, may represent part of a Roman track leading down the valley side to the River Tyne. The limited artefactual assemblage suggests that the boundary ditches enclosed an area utilised for agricultural purposes. The small pottery assemblage suggests that the activity dated principally from the second century AD with limited activity into the late third century. Later phases of archaeological activity at the site relate to medieval and post-medieval agricultural use of the land.
