Between April and June 2005 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field
evaluation at Hunts Grove, Quedgeley, Gloucestershire (NGR SO 8106 1220). The
work was commissioned by CgMs Consulting on behalf of Crest Strategic Projects
Ltd. The evaluation revealed two main foci of late prehistoric and Roman activity.
The main focus was a double ditched enclosure and associated field system, located
towards the east of the site. The enclosure formed a probable farmstead which dated
from the mid-late Iron Age but continued in use to the end of the Roman period. An
associated burial, probably dated to the Iron Age, and an undated cremation were
also revealed.
Iron Age and mid-late Romano-British ditches were revealed towards the west of the
site. The ditches may have marked the eastern limits of a settlement to the west,
beyond the limits of the evaluation. Also present were a large number of mainly
undated ditches and gullies, the remnants of agricultural field systems possibly
associated with the farmsteads. Undated pits and postholes were also revealed.
