Abstract

In March 2019 Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by RPS Group on behalf of Miller Homes to undertake a trial trench evaluation at the site of a proposed residential development at Streethay, Lichfield. The evaluation consisted of 31 trenches which represent a 4% sample of the 9.1ha proposed development area. The trenches were targeted on features identified in a previous geophysical survey and were designed to provide good coverage of the site. The evaluation revealed no significant archaeological remains and produced little in the way of finds. A few abraded sherds of Roman pottery were recovered from a truncated pit in Trench 8, but no other Roman or earlier activity was identified. An undated boundary ditch running through Trenches 17 and 19 probably represented a post-medieval field boundary as did similar features in Trench 27. The trenching confirmed that the main field boundaries mapped within the geophysical survey were of modern date. Based on the results of the evaluation the site is considered to have little or no archaeological interest.
