Abstract

Following the completion of a geophysical survey undertaken by Archaeological Surveys in November 2005, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) were commissioned by Defence Estates to undertake an archaeological watching brief
during preparatory groundworks associated with the construction of a proposed synthetic football pitch at DST Leconfield, to the north-west of Beverley, East Yorkshire (NGR TA 0220 4310). The development site comprised a rectangular area measuring approximately 74m north west/south-east by 52m north-east/south-west, to the south of the main camp buildings.
The watching brief was undertaken in two phases; the first observed the stripping of the area to construct the synthetic pitch and the second observed drainage and service
trenches associated with the sports pitch. These groundworks were completed intermittently over a period of two weeks in January 2006. A number of features were revealed during the watching brief including one substantial ditch, two furrows, one shallow pit-type feature, one possible posthole, one tree bole and a goal post.
Although the features were undated, it is likely that the ditch relates to the postmedieval enclosure of the landscape, whilst the alignment of one of the furrows
suggests that it may belong to an earlier field system
