Chester Archaeological Society
Founded in 1849, the Society was first entitled the 'Chester Architectural, Archaeological, and Historic Society', or more fully the 'Architectural, Archaeological and Historic Society for the County, City and Neighbourhood of Chester'. In 1886 this was reduced to the 'Chester Archaeological and Historic Society' but the word 'Architectural' was soon restored and 'North Wales' added. In 1966 the title was finally reduced to the simple 'Chester Archaeological Society' without any narrowing of the Society's purposes....

Wixoe to Kirtling Green Pipeline. Archaeological Evaluation

In September 2009 Birmingham Archaeology was commissioned by Suffolk and Essex Water to undertake an archaeological evaluation in advance of a proposed pipeline between Wixoe and Kirtling Green, Suffolk. This report records the results of the evaluation and highlights areas of archaeological significance. At Wixoe, cropmarks and previous fieldwalking identified dense concentrations of artefacts dating to the Romano-British period. A geophysical survey identified distinct structures along with large pit like anomalies. The features identified by...

Tesco, Stourport-on-Severn. Archaeological Evaluation

Birmingham Archaeology was commissioned in September 2010 by the Santon Group, acting on behalf of Tesco plc (with advice from J L Hearn) to undertake an archaeological evaluation in advance of a proposed supermarket development at Stourport-On-Severn, Worcestershire (centred on NGR SO 81347113). Birmingham Archaeology undertook an evaluation of the site between 20th and 30th September 2010. The evaluation followed a desk-based assessment which identified a number of areas of potential for buried archaeological deposits...

AS Rolling Mills, Cradely Heath, Sandwell, West Midlands. Historic Building Recording

In August 2007, Birmingham Archaeology carried out a programme of historic building recording and analysis on AS Rolling Mills, 75 Lower High Street, Cradley Heath (NGR SO 9400 8581) in advance of the redevelopment of the site. The buildings were recorded at a variety of levels from Level 1 to 3 dependent on their period and style. The site showed continued development from late 19th-century beginnings through to the late 20th century. The buildings surveyed...

Land off Chilton Road, Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-317182)

The evaluation was preceded by a desk-based assessment and geophysical survey of the site, the latter detecting three concentric curvilinear anomalies in the northern corner that were interpreted as the remains of an Iron Age hillfort. Previously, the presence of the hillfort had been tentatively suggested by cropmarks c. 350m to the north-east of the site, which had led to the site being included within an Archaeological Notification Area. The evaluation confirmed the presence of...

ASDA Petrol Filling Station, Bruton Way, Gloucester. Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: cotswold2-299396)

An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology during groundworks associated with the construction of a new petrol station at the ASDA supermarket, Bruton Way, Gloucester. A stone built wall, possibly associated with a former Midlands Railway locomotive shed, and a brick built soakaway and associated drain, probably associated with the former Eastgate Railway Station sidings, were identified. A small, undated ditch was also identified aligned parallel with the brick built drain that has...

17 The Avenue, Cirencester, Gloucestershire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-286045)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in May 2017 at 17 The Avenue, Cirencester, Gloucestershire. A single test pit, measuring 1.5m by 1.5m, was excavated. An intersection of two walls and a small portion of a probable opus signinum floor were identified during the evaluation. These structural elements are most likely associated with the continuation of Roman Building XIV, 2 which fronting street D, the boundary between insula I and insula XIV/XV of...

Longfield Place, Plymouth, Devon. Archaeological Evaluation and Mitigation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-317899)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in April-July 2014 at Longfield Place, Plymouth, Devon. Nine trenches were excavated, uncovering elements of the former Greenbank Prison, which was constructed on the site in 1849. The evaluation revealed the disturbed remnants of a number of basement cells within the former south-western wing of the prison, part of a panopticon that formed part of the exercise yard and a section of the original prison boundary wall....

Abbey Old House, Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-294939)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in September 2017 at Abbey Old House, Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. Three test pits were excavated. One test pit contained a north-west/south-east aligned wall, interpreted as part of a medieval building most probably associated with Winchcombe Abbey. The other two test pits contained flagstone flooring associated with the medieval building. These features were covered by demolition layers, attributed to the destruction of the building.

Southmoor, Springhill, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-287344)

Between 13th and 21st February 2017, Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological evaluation comprising 23 trenches on the site of a proposed residential development near Springhill, Southmoor, Oxfordshire (NGR SU 3897 9795). Archaeological features were present in 13 of the 23 trenches, representing at least three phases of activity on the site. The earliest phase dated to the Mesolithic and early Neolithic period and was indicated by a small assemblage of worked flints recovered from across...

White Hart Hotel, Dorchester on Thames, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-283600)

The evaluation identified two features possibly representing walls which have been robbed of stone. One of these corresponds closely with the conjectured alignment of the northern defences of the Roman small town. A small number of postholes, a pit and a ditch were revealed, broadly dating to the post-medieval period, although two produced Roman pottery which was almost certainly residual. These appear to represent light-weight structures, possibly associated with horticultural activity within the back garden...
