Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Cemex UK Operations Ltd to undertake a palaeoenvironmental assessment of land to the west and south-west of Roan Edge Quarry, Cumbria (area centred SD 5840 9250). Following on from a desk-based assessment and walkover survey, undertaken in April 2004 as part of the same planning application (5/05/9005), Cumbria County Council’s Historic Environment Service (CCCHES) advised that a programme of predetermination archaeological work consisting of palaeoenvironmental sampling was required.
The archaeological work consisted of core sampling along two transects traversing the proposed quarry extension. In accordance with a verbal brief provided by CCCHES, this programme was intended to inform any further archaeological evaluation work by assessing the survival and extent of the peat deposits within the proposed development area and, consequently, the potential for archaeological remains.
