Abstract:
Border Archaeology was instructed by Tomack Developments to carry out a programme of archaeological work comprising geophysical survey, archaeological field evaluation and excavation at Western Way Dymock Gloucestershire. The excavation programme was undertaken in 2013 and followed directly upon completion of initial geophysical survey and archaeological evaluation. The evaluation identified ditches crossing the site, together with pits and postholes sealed by a post-Roman plough-soil. Excavation confirmed these initial results and identified small-scale industrial activity, which developed during the 1st -early 2nd century AD and declined in the later 2nd century. Little 3rd century or later pottery was found and this may have been a time when the settlement focus moved. Initial results suggested the most significant feature on the site was a 'pit' or kiln feature [1046] dated to the late 1st -early 2nd centuries. This report reflects the results of this specific programme of additional analysis, incorporating petrological analysis and further discussion of the pottery and hearth features, which concluded that the pottery was likely to have been locally made and that [1046] may indeed be the remnant of a kiln, although the fill was not a last firing but detritus from kilns nearby. Further evidence of industrial activity was represented by hearth features. Two substantial ditches ran from north to south across the site and whilst it's likely that these were field boundaries, they also served a drainage function. While their alignment suggested that these features were open at the same time, the pottery indicated that they may have gone out of use at different periods. A far greater number of finds were recovered from the northern end of the ditches than from their southern ends, further suggesting that the site may have been peripheral to the activity taking place to the north, possibly closer to the line of the Roman road.
