Abstract

Between May and November 2007 Oxford Archaeology (OA) was required to commission a geophysical survey and undertook a watching brief and six trench field evaluation at Blandford Camp Blandford Forum on behalf of the Defence Estates, Environmental Support Team (Historic Environment) (DE) of the Ministry of Defence (MOD). The watching brief and evaluation revealed well defined chalk cut linear features, ditches and a tunnel that had been excavated and rapidly
backfilled. Artefacts recovered included barbed wire and a single .303 cartridge case. The features are thought be shallow ditches or practice trenches constructed during either the period 1914-18, or 1939-45.
