Abstract

Lakeside Partnership Ltd propose to undertake part of a residential development (Planning Reference 2202/1407) in the form of a spine road, associated roundabout and drainage, totalling 3.6ha within a 40ha site, at Brat Hill, between the A18 and the Bottesford Beck on the south-east side of Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire (NGR SE 9165 0826). A desk-based assessment undertaken by John Samuels Archaeological Consultants (JSAC 2002) identified that the development site lies within an area of archaeological potential: many prehistoric stone tools have been recovered from the sandy warrens around Scunthorpe; and a series of late Iron-Age and Romano-British enclosures have recently been identified to the west of Lakeside (ibid). Accordingly, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) were commissioned by JSAC, on behalf of Lakeside Partnership Ltd, to undertake a programme of archaeological evaluation within the 3.6ha development site. The evaluation was undertaken in October 2005 and comprised of ten trial to a maximum depth of 3.2m. Four of the trenches (Trenches 2-5), all located on the west side of the site, were positioned to examine the corridor of the proposed spine road drain, while Trench 1 was located adjacent to an existing balancing pond in order to investigate the proposed extension of this facility. A further five trenches (Trenches 6-10) were located in the area of the flood plain along the northern side of Bottesford Beck.
