Stricklands, Chapel Road, Southampton (OASIS ID wessexar1-92058)

Wessex Archaeology
The fieldwork comprised of an archaeological excavation of the footprint of the proposed building. A total of four archaeological features were identified within the Site. These comprised two ditches and two inter-cutting pits. Two Saxon rubbish pits contained material associated with the disposal of both general domestic waste and cess material, and possibly industrial waste; the latter suggested by moderate quantities of slag retrieved from the fills of the pits. Although no dating evidence has...

The Deanery, Chapel Road, Southampton (OASIS ID wessexar1-92410)

Wessex Archaeology
The site lies within the south-west of the known extent of the nationally important mid-Saxon settlement of Hamwic. The natural Brickearth sub-strata was cut by a number of pit like features; only two of these were sample excavated and very little dating evidence was recovered. However, both sample excavated features displayed a degree of regularity that suggested that they were shallow pits and were very similar in form to the Mid Saxon pits excavated during...

Three of the Study Areas...

Blackstone, Worcestershire

Derek Hurst
Aerial photography in 1957 resulted in the discovery of a rectangular double-ditched enclosure near Bewdley. Excavation in the 1970s, in advance of gravel extraction, provided limited evidence of Mesolithic, Neolithic and Bronze Age activity prior to occupation in the later Iron Age, when the enclosure was established. Pottery and briquetage indicate trading links with the wider region, respectively with west and north Worcestershire, and with Droitwich. The main Iron Age occupation is dated from the...

Archaeological Cropmark Landscapes of the Magnesian Limestone

Ian Roberts, David Berg & Alison Deegan
Archaeologists have, for the last 30 years, been recording the rural archaeology of the Magnesian Limestone belt and adjacent areas in South, West and North Yorkshire. This has occurred in a rather piecemeal way. Initially this was carried out through the air reconnaissance of cropmarks, but more lately through a combination of air photo interpretation and mapping, geophysical survey and excavation, mainly as a consequence of extensive aggregates extraction. Recent archaeological work has begun to...
