NNPA, on behalf of the partnership, commissioned Oxford Archaeology North to undertake the CMP. The first phase of data acquisition for the CMP comprised desk-based research and a walkover survey to provide an understanding of the CMP project area and the local historic landscape. This interim
report briefly sets out a summary of the current understanding of the historic environment of the CMP
area and provisional recommendations for further archaeological work and mitigation. The desk-based
research, walkover survey, and architectural assessment were undertaken in July 2013. The primary focus of the assessment is the CMP boundary, which will be subject to proposed development, with an outlying study area extending 250m from the CMP boundary.
The study area is situated within an extremely rich area of the historic environment and the great density of sites relating to Roman military activity is reflected by the inclusion of the area within the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site, with the Wall being the most conspicuous and well-known historic monument in the local area. The Vallum earthwork runs to the south of Hadrian’s Wall and part of this monument runs through the CMP area. The study area also lies close to areas with evidence for human
activity during the Bronze Age, Iron Age, early medieval, medieval, and post-medieval periods. The study area includes known sites of Roman, medieval, and post-medieval date and the potential exists for further, previously unknown, sites of archaeological interest within the area that may survive as subsurface remains.
