Abstract

During June 2017 Oxford Archaeology South undertook an eight trench evaluation for CgMs on behalf of Crest Nicholson South West on land at Waterwells, Quedgeley, Gloucestershire which is, at this time at pre- Application stage and being considered for residential development. Previous investigations within the surrounding area had indicated a moderate potential for Prehistoric and Roman-British archaeology at the Site, however, a recent geophysical survey revealed no identifiable anomalies as Prehistoric or Roman features within the Site boundary. Some geophysical anomalies indicating possible ridge and furrow were identified, as well as some other ‘unknown’ anomalies, both were targeted by the trenching. The evaluation revealed no evidence for archaeological features and no archaeological artefacts were recovered. The anomalies identified by the geophysical survey were shown to be caused by variations in the natural geology. The evaluation indicates this Site is of low archaeological potential.
