Abstract:
In July 2019, ADAS carried out an archaeological watching brief for Bristol Water plc. The groundworks were for the repair of the Cheddar to Brent Knoll water pipeline on land at Brent Knoll, to the south of Bristol, Somerset (NGR: ST 34718 50995) as shown on Figure 1. A total of seven investigative trenches were dug. A linear cut feature [1004] from Trench 1 may be associated with the large cut feature [904] previously identified during excavations in 2013 (Wessex Archaeology 2013b) shown in Figure 3a. The feature identified in 2013 [904], was interpreted as a large Romano-British ditch (ibid). It is considered that cut [1004] found in Trench 1 is a continuation of this feature. In addition, the sherd of Romano-British pottery recovered from the lowermost fill of this feature (1005) further supports this theory. The loom weight recovered from Trench 5 also supports the Romano-British activity understood to have taken place in this area. Although Trench 7 was located only approximately 9 m to the east of the previous Area 7 excavation carried out in 2013 (Figure 2b), no trace of feature [704] was observed within the trench. This suggests that feature [704] terminates between the Area 7 excavation and Trench 7. The absence of a larger number, or more significant archaeological features recorded during the archaeological monitoring of the seven investigative trenches may be attributed to the relatively limited impact of the groundworks. These results indicate that the monitoring methodology used was effective in ensuring that harm to the historic environment resource was mitigated or avoided.
