Abstract:
This report summarises the progress to date on non-invasive archaeological investigations on the Toot, or Camp, at Oldbury-on-Severn, South Gloucestershire, between December 2015 and December 2016. The project was supported as part of 'A Forgotten Landscape', a Heritage Lottery Funded Landscape Partnership Scheme. The aims covered by this report are to perform geophysical and topographical surveys of the monument; to help focus future excavation work. Seven of the nine fields on the monument were available for surveying. All of these seven have been surveyed topographically. Six of them have been surveyed geophysically. There was no compelling evidence for any major structures or large-scale man-made features such as infilled ditches, other than those which are still visible on the surface. Ephemeral anomalies, particularly resistivity anomalies, were identified as potential sites for test-pitting. Test pitting results are reported in a separate report from DigVentures, who supervised the test pitting.
