Abstract:
As a requirement of the planning conditions a plot of land c.4.5ha in area, was surveyed to determine its archaeological potential. Fifteen trenches were excavated, positioned specifically to investigate the postulated route of a Roman road. Whilst no artefacts relating to the road were found, ditches, pits and post-holes were located in Trenches 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12, which ranged in date from the Early-Mid Iron Age to the post-medieval period. Occupation evidence was recovered in Trench 11 where pits were found in association with a post hole and occupation debris of Early-Mid Iron Age date. The most complex sequence of features was found in Trench 8 where a series of boundary ditches running north-south showed evidence of continued use and re-cutting. The abraded nature of the Roman pottery sherds from these ditches suggested that they were agricultural in nature. [Au(abr)]
