Abstract:
South Bedfordshire District Council granted planning permission, for the change of use of allotment gardens to cemetery use at the Victoria Allotments, West Street, Dunstable. A condition attached to the planning permission required the implementation of a Scheme of Archaeological Resource Management (SARM) as a consequence of the development. Bedfordshire County Council's Archaeological Officer (CAO) issued a Brief, which was designed to secure the implementation of a programme of archaeological resource management in fulfilment of that condition. Groundworks required as part of the change involved removal of overburden within the footprint of a new access road and footpath, which were the focus of the archaeological mitigation. A single adult inhumation burial (probably of Roman date) represents the earliest remains found. The grave contained no dateable artefacts, although it pre-dated a series of wheel ruts some of which cut into the upper fill of the grave. The wheel ruts form an extensive group of parallel ruts aligned ENE to WSW; they represent the remains of a wide, un-metalled trackway. The latest archaeological feature was a ditch aligned ENE to WSW situated on the boundary between the rutted track and the terrace slope. This contained modern (19th/20th century) debris.
