Abstract:
In March ADAS UK ltd was commissioned by Historic England to undertake an archaeological watching brief of groundworks associated with the closure of a Badger Sett on Lynes Barn Scheduled Monument (Historic England List No. 1003328) (Figure 1). The site is centred on National Grid Reference SP 06134 27838. The archaeological watching brief was carried out in accordance with a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) prepared by Diarmuid O'Seaneachain in September 2015. Following consultations with Ms Melanie Barge the Historic England Inspector of Ancient Monuments for Gloucestershire, the WSI identified archaeological monitoring and recording to be carried out during groundworks required for the closure of a badger sett, the proofing of the northern bank of the monument to prevent further damage by badgers, and the localised repair and re-profiling of parts of the northern embankment of the Scheduled Monument. An archaeological excavation was undertaken with a small 'L' shaped trench measuring 2.5m x 2.1m x 0.50m wide through the top of the bank of the Lynes Barn Scheduled Monument. The earthworks consist of a three sided bank to the north of the current road with a ditch visible on the inside of the northern bank. The earthworks enclose an area approximately 1,798m2 in total. Overall the site of Lynes Barn appears to have been a probable Post Medieval livestock enclosure. The bank was constructed from the ditch fill being piled up on its outer edge, which has since slowly eroded back into the ditch through natural processes. The enclosure was probably built to shelter livestock and keep them close to the road for easy transport. It may also have been built to reduce the risk of animals straying too close to the very steep slope along the enclosure's northern boundary.
