Abstract

Between the 15th and the 17th of May 2013 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation within two adjoining fields at land off Station Road, Feniton, Devon on behalf of CgMs Consulting and in support of planning application 13/0591/FUL. The evaluation consisted of five trenches which were targeted on geophysical anomalies. The western parts of the fields had been previously evaluated by AC Archaeology. The earliest archaeological evidence comprised a buried soil horizon of early Roman or pre-Roman date. This layer was cut by features within Trenches 1, 3 and 4. A ditch within Trench 1 contained pottery of mid-late Roman date, and an enclosure to the south may be of a similar date on grounds of alignment. Other undated features included enclosure ditches (Trench 2), and field boundaries (Trenches 3, 4 and 5).
