Abstract:
The programme of archaeological observation undertaken by Border Archaeology on groundworks relating to the proposed redevelopment of two barns and a circular horse engine house at Pigeon House Farm, Eldersfield, Worcestershire, revealed very little in terms of significant archaeological deposits, features or finds. No archaeological evidence of activity predating the existing post-medieval farm outbuildings was identified. The removal of the existing flooring within the two-storey barn (dating from c.1700 with later additions) and subsequent reduction of ground levels revealed evidence of made ground containing 18th-19th century ceramics, possibly relating to a phase of 19th century reconstruction, underlying which was a mid reddish-brown clay interpreted as a landscaping deposit associated with the formation of the low platform on which the barn stands. Within the engine house (of probable early 19th century date), evidence of a circular slot was identified within the centre of the turning circle, which would have carried the vertical drive shaft of the engine. This slot had evidently been filled in with debris after the mechanism of the horse engine had been removed. No archaeologically significant features, deposits or artefacts were identified within the single-storey barn (which appears to have been largely rebuilt in the late 20th century). Similarly, no significant archaeology was revealed during the external groundworks adjacent to the single-storey barn.
