Between 11th and 13th July 2012 Oxford Archaeology carried out and Archaeological Evaluation at Well Road, East Cowes on the Isle of Wight. The investigation was carried out on behalf of Kimberley Developments Plc and was monitored by Owen Cambridge, County Archaeological Officer. A single T-shaped trench measuring 73m² was excavated within the proposed development area. The trench was positioned to allow maximum coverage of the site. The primary aim of the investigation was to assess whether a previously excavated burial formed part of a post-medieval cemetery. The secondary aim was to locate a culvert assumed to run through the site. Any further archaeological deposits were to be sampled and recorded. No further burials were revealed, supporting the supposition that the previously located burial was an isolated event. However the culvert was located and found to be 2m NW of its assumed position. No further archaeological deposits were observed, and the evidence showed that the site had been markedly truncated by previous development
