Abstract:
In July 2005 Wessex Archaeology undertook an excavation on behalf of the Cooperative Group on land near the centre of Amesbury, prior to redevelopment as a supermarket. A Watching Brief during the early part of the construction work took place in April 2006. The excavation revealed several features of probable late Saxon date, including a number of aligned ditches (property boundaries), a dog burial within a pit and other smaller pits. Some of these features can be correlated with recorded documentary evidence. Medieval features include an east to west aligned ditch just to the north of the present day northern boundary wall of the former Redworth House, other ditches and some intercutting pits. In addition several other ditches and some quarry pits can be assigned to the post-medieval and modern periods. A small amount of evidence for earlier activity includes worked flint, and a few residual Roman and early/middle Saxon sherds. The report assesses the potential of the fieldwork results for further analysis and publication. It highlights a series of updated research aims for the project and outlines a proposed programme of work to complete a publication report and archive for the project.
