Abstract:
Desk-based assessment of a proposed development site identified that Neolithic stone axes and arrowheads and Roman coins had been found in the vicinity, and that numerous undated cropmarks had been recorded, some of which could potentially have been of prehistoric date. Partial excavation of one group of cropmarks had revealed evidence of Romano-British occupation. Worksop had been recorded in the Domesday Book, although it had not developed until the founding of a Cluniac priory in c. 1103. The proposed development area had lain within Worksop Park, which had been mentioned in 12th century documents. Worksop Manor had begun to develop in the 16th century, and the manor and park had survived into the 19th century, although the house had been demolished and the land auctioned following their purchase by the Duke of Newcastle in 1839. An aerial photographic assessment revealed many potential archaeological features within the area to the west and north-west of the study area, possibly representing elements of a 'brickwork' type landscape. Two probable buried ditches had been identified which may have intersected within the proposal area. A magnetometer survey was also undertaken, which revealed only two features of archaeological significance. These were linear anomalies which coincided with the two probable ditches identified on aerial photographs. [AIP]
