Broadway Farm, Down Ampney, Gloucestershire Archaeological Excavation Report

Smith, Kirsty Broadway Farm, Down Ampney, Gloucestershire Archaeological Excavation Report. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by CgMs Consulting to undertake an archaeological excavation and watching brief in advance of the demolition of several buildings and the construction of up to 44 dwellings at Broadway Farm, Down Ampney, Gloucestershire. A small amount of residual Roman pottery was recovered. The majority of the features on the site were broadly dated to the medieval period, with a few undated features which may also be of this date. One set of features in the western part of the site appears to form a set of parallel enclosures or plots, and several of these ditches contained pottery dating to the 12th-13th century. Several boundary ditches were dated to the medieval period. A demolished dry stone wall was found in the southeast of the site and may have been part of a garden plot or a small enclosure, just north of the road. Ridge and furrow was also found towards the northern end of the site but could not be dated in this excavation. These features may have been abandoned by the later post-medieval period, as a previous evaluation found late 18th to mid-19th century pottery and post-medieval glass in two of the furrows.
