Plot W, Basing View, Basingstoke

Allen, Martyn Plot W, Basing View, Basingstoke. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




An archaeological evaluation of a 2ha-site at Basing View in Basingstoke, Hampshire, was carried out in advance of a planning application. Ten trenches were excavated across the site. Two trenches in south-central part of the site revealed numerous features dating to the late Iron Age/early Roman period. The density of the archaeology and the quantity of domestic material in this area suggests the presence of a small rural settlement, perhaps similar to contemporary sites known elsewhere in and around Basingstoke. Trenches across the northern half of the site revealed several undated ditches. These may relate to outlying field boundaries associated with the late Iron Age/early Roman settlement, though it is possible that one, at least, dated to the postmedieval period.
