In May 2016 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological excavation for the
Environmental Dimension Partnership Ltd (EDP) on behalf of Gallagher Estates on
the site of the redevelopment of Arden Heath Farm, Stratford-Upon-Avon,
Warwickshire. The investigation uncovered three broadly parallel ditches and a
number of tree throws forming a linear pattern on a similar north-south alignment to
the ditches. The westernmost ditch contained a single sherd of Severn Valley ware,
dating the ditch to the second century AD or later. All the other features were
undated. The ditches appeared to be on a similar alignment to a Roman road
recorded in the Warwickshire HER and seen on the geophysical survey carried out
in the area in 2013. However, the shallow depth and homogeneous fills of the
ditches indicates that the features uncovered in this excavation relate to a trackway
forming part of a wider field system on a similar alignment to the Roman road, but
are not characteristic of Roman roadside features themselves.
