Oxford Archaeology South was commissioned by ADAS UK Ltd to undertake an
archaeological evaluation of the site of a proposed new housing development at the
Central Bedfordshire College, Kingsway, Dunstable, Bedfordshire.
The work was undertaken in March 2015. Eight evaluation trenches were
excavated, each measuring 50 x 1.8m. No archaeological features were identified
and the only artefactual material comprised one sherd of 20th century pottery and
post-medieval tile which were recovered from the topsoil.
The site lies at the periphery of the core of the Roman settlement within Dunstable
and just east of a possible late 1st Century Roman routeway that runs along the
edge of the site, before joining Watling Street. The lack of any features recorded
within the trenches would suggest that this area was not heavily settled and may
have been used as fields or woodland. Based on the lack of any archaeological
features recorded in the evaluation the area is considered to have low potential.
