Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by CgMs Consulting to undertake an
archaeological excavation and watching brief in advance of the demolition of several
buildings and the construction of up to 44 dwellings at Broadway Farm, Down
Ampney, Gloucestershire.
A small amount of residual Roman pottery was recovered. The majority of the
features on the site were broadly dated to the medieval period, with a few undated
features which may also be of this date. One set of features in the western part of the
site appears to form a set of parallel enclosures or plots, and several of these ditches
contained pottery dating to the 12th-13th century. Several boundary ditches were
dated to the medieval period. A demolished dry stone wall was found in the southeast
of the site and may have been part of a garden plot or a small enclosure, just
north of the road. Ridge and furrow was also found towards the northern end of the
site but could not be dated in this excavation. These features may have been
abandoned by the later post-medieval period, as a previous evaluation found late
18th to mid-19th century pottery and post-medieval glass in two of the furrows.
