Abstract:
Herefordshire Archaeology undertook an archaeological assessment and evaluation. During January 2002, a test area of resistivity survey was undertaken over the course of the Roman road in order to ascertain its survival and the presence (or lack) of possible roadside settlement. An archaeological field evaluation north of The Weir Garden followed up the reported discovery of Roman material apparently eroding out of the river terrace bluff directly above the Romano-British terrace site within The Weir Garden. Following geophysical survey of this area, a series of trenches was excavated by machine across the parkland directly to the east of The Weir Nursing Home. No traces of structures and no finds of any kind were retrieved, natural soil profiles being found in all eight trenches. It is therefore more likely that the material eroding from the bank is associated with Roman structures which have been covered by material which has slipped or gradually eroded from the river terrace. This raises the possibility of the presence of the remains of high status buildings surviving, close to the base of the river terrace in this location.
