In August and November 2011, Oxford Archaeology South undertook an evaluation on land off Scylla Road, Heathrow on behalf of SEGRO/APP. Seventeen trenches representing a 2% sample were excavated demonstrating significant truncation had occurred within the site boundary. This was either
associated with a possible quarry and landfill event or the more recent construction of the former warehouse unit and associated services. No archaeological remains were identified with the exception of a single undated treehole in Trench 1. Relatively undisturbed gravel and alluvial horizons indicating increased potential for the preservation of archaeology were only identified in Trenches 1, 2 and 8 within the periphery of the site boundary. The results of the fieldwork indicate that there is a very low potential for archaeological remains to survive within the development boundary.
