Abstract:
Border Archaeology Ltd (BAL) was instructed by Daniel Comerford of Ellis and Co Shepton Mallet Somerset on behalf of the English Heritage Trust (EHT) to undertake a programme of archaeological observation during groundworks to remove a temporary marquee structure at Cleeve Abbey Abbey Road Washford Somerset TA23 0PS and replace it with a purpose-built single-storey timber-framed pavilion to protect the 13th -century Old Refectory tiled pavement. Archaeological observation took place on May 22nd and 25th and July 14th 2015. Observation carried out in May 2015 revealed evidence for a thin deposit containing a single sherd of late medieval pottery and a fragment of glazed roof tile, together with oyster shell, slate roof tile fragments and a complete slate tile. The only additional dating evidence identified related to a single sherd of late 19th -to early 20th -century blue transferware pottery from the topsoil. In the absence of any further evidence to confirm the dating sequence, it was not possible to state categorically whether the medieval deposit was in situ or had been redeposited at a later date from another part of the site. The second phase of ground works to the east of the area previously observed was carried out in July 2015 to locate a late 20th -century storm-drain cover to the south of the cloister. The works were limited in extent and required only the removal of topsoil/turf overburden. No deposits, features or structures of archaeological interest were revealed.
