Abstract

Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) were commissioned by United Utilities plc to undertake an archaeological evaluation prior to the construction of a new water transfer pipeline between Melling (SJ 3895 9895) and Fazakerley (SJ 3928 9743), to the north of the city of Liverpool, Merseyside (Fig 1). This followed an archaeological desk-based assessment of the proposed route, requested by the Merseyside Archaeological Service, which was carried out in May 2004. The evaluation consisted of trial trenching across the Alt basin, which targeted the site of a prehistoric axe head findspot (Site 11) and was also in the vicinity of a findspot of a flint core (Site 13). The evaluation was carried out between the 6th and 9th of December 2004, and comprised two 25m trenches in the vicinity of Site 11 and fifteen 5m trenches heading west from Site 11 towards Site 13 (Fig 2).
