Two small evaluation trenches were excavated in the garden of a bungalow, adjacent to the churchyard boundary wall on the west side of St. Andrew's Church. The known Roman road from the Mendips to the River Avon, over the Dundry Hills, was thought to have passed through Chew Magna but its precise route was never located. During the evaluation a very solid, worn, cobble layer was found. It sealed a Roman pottery sherd and was almost certainly part of the road. Pottery dating from the late 11th/12th century and a wall were also found, which indicated the likelihood of early medieval occupation. [Au(adp)]

[ST 6225]. The first part of the book unfolds the progress of the excavation year by year, showing what actually happens on a major dig and how each season's achievement helps to set the objectives for the next. An assessment of the usefulness of geophysical prospecting is included. Part II is an interim report, with many illustrations, on the five years' findings - the Neo and BA occupation, EIA defences and developed town, the Roman assault and massacre at c 70 AD, the fresh defences and hall of c 500 AD, the Aethelredan burh and the final medieval walling and gate.

The buildings (and later additions) of a purpose built, planned factory of 1859/60 were recorded. The engine house contained evidence of a rotative horizontal steam engine.[AIP]

A watching brief undertaken following an earlier evaluation identified modern deposits associated with the construction of "Chelston", a private house, sealing natural deposits. No cut features were seen and no finds were retrieved. [Au(abr)]
An intermittent watching brief was held over the construction of houses together with associated works for services and access roads. This was deemed necessary given the proximity of important kilns and other findspots associated with the Roman pottery industry to the south and west, together with the possibility of occupation associated with the River Witham to the east of the site. At the time of the first archaeological visit in October 1994 work had already progressed on 11 houses to a phase beyond which archaeological recording was practical, some sherds of Roman pottery were however recovered. In January 1995 the works for two house plots were monitored, but no obvious finds or features were recorded, partly due to waterlogging and partly due to surface damage by machinery. [Au(adp)]

Trial trenches and a test pit were cut following the results of an earlier watching brief which established the survival of archaeological deposits along part of the West Street frontage. Two of the trenches encountered backfilled cellars. The ground seems to have undergone much disturbance and the lack of dating evidence from finds means the archaeological sequence is of limited use. The thick flint and gravel deposits revealed during the watching brief were not found at the appropriate heights and were not of similar thickness. Flints were discovered at a much greater depth at trench bottom. [Au(abr)]

A watching brief monitored the removal of below-ground petrol tanks and other associated structures. A large area of 'made ground' was present. Undatable rubbish pits cut into the underlying silty layers and one small brick cellar was recorded. A small patch of metalling was revealed. A second larger metalled area is possibly a road structure of medieval or post medieval date. [AIP]

An evaluation was carried out at the proposed site of a new vicarage, within the medieval town of Kelvedon. Occupation in the medieval period had been centred on the High Street and around the nearby Church of St Mary the Virgin, which lay on the probable site of a Roman cemetery. The nave of the church dated from the 12th century, and part of its fabric contained Roman brick. During the evaluation, an undated post-hole, a possible pit of Roman date, a Late Bronze Age post-hole and an undated ditch were revealed. The ditch ran at right angles to Church Street and probably represented a former medieval or post-medieval property or field boundary. Finds consisted of two sherds of Roman pottery, eight Late Bronze Age sherds, burnt flint and two pieces of cattle bone. [AIP]

An archaeological evaluation of a site located within the medieval town of Abingdon, revealed deposits and structural features of medieval date in the southernmost part of the site facing Ock Street. Two pre-medieval, but otherwise undatable features were also identified. [Au(abr)]

The watching brief was maintained during topsoil removal and excavations at a development site. Mine shafts or galleries were known to have lain beneath the development area and finds of pottery and clay pipe had recently been recovered from a ploughed field within the site. During the watching brief, no archaeological features were observed and only 19th century artefacts were recovered. [AIP]

Evaluation trenches were excavated to identify the depth of which Roman archaeology was present within the former Roman Colonia of Lindum. Likely Roman and medieval deposits were identified within 0.40m of the ground surface. Post-medieval occupation/demolition deposits were also identified, along with two walls. [Au(adp)]
In advance of estate management proposals an archaeological evaluation of a possible ornamental canal situated within the parkland of High Hall, Pamphill was undertaken. The construction of the canal was studied and its date of construction put at the late 17th or early 18th century. A path and collapsed wall were also recorded. The remains of a dam, sluice and sluice hatch were cleared and recorded. Where the upcast from the excavation of the canal was investigated it was found to contain flint of Neolithic/Bronze Age date and considerable quantities of burnt flint. This suggested that the rare ornamental garden feature was located on a prehistoric occupation or settlement site. [Au(abr)]

A ditch was found containing Roman pottery and tile which added to the pattern of Roman activity in the Grange Road area. Three pits were also found on the site; the earlier two were dated to the late 17th to 18th century and one to the 19th century. The site had been extensively truncated by 19th century activity.

A trial trench exposed disturbed natural brickearth, and produced three prehistoric struck flints and burnt flint fragments. The brickearth was covered with post-medieval ploughsoil. [Au(abr)]
