Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a geophysical survey and an
archaeological field evaluation of a proposed development site at
Dryleaze Farm, south of Siddington, Gloucestershire on behalf of Hills
Aggregates Ltd in October and November 2001. The evaluation revealed
archaeological features and deposits within four of the six fields
investigated. In Field 5, in the south-west of the site, three ring ditches
were located, one with an associated central feature. In addition, a
possible pit alignment, an area of Iron Age occupation and a Roman
trackway were identified. In Field 6, to the north, a continuation of the
Roman trackway was located, and two clusters of undated archaeological
activity. The courses of two palaeochannels were also confirmed. In Field
1 two clusters of archaeological activity dated to the Iron Age were
located in the centre and north of the field. In the southern end of Field 2,
in the south-east of the proposed development area, there were undated
archaeological features sealed by peat and alluvial deposits
