Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological evaluation of a site in
support of a planning application for development. The site is located on the
southern edge of Hampton Magna, Warwickshire. The works comprised the
excavation of 28 trenches distributed across the 6.9ha site. The evaluation
was primarily concerned with identifying any additional archaeological
evidence that was not visible in the historic records or apparent on a previous
geophysical survey.
A single ditch and an isolated undated possible pit were recorded with the
trenches. A single sherd of late Roman pottery was recovered from the ditch,
though it is possible this material is intrusive. Furrows identified in the
geophysical survey were observed in the majority of the trenches.
In general, the investigation confirmed the use of the proposed development
site has been predominantly arable as demonstrated by furrows and possible
field boundary. No archaeology of significance was revealed during the
evaluation confirming the results of the geophysical survey.
