The Lancashire University Archaeological Unit undertook an evaluation in January 1995, at the request of Mr P Jackman of Robert Pinkus and Co. on behalf of Courtaulds plc, conducted in advance of a proposed development on land located to the south-east of Longridge Road at Red Scar, Preston.
The evaluation involved the excavation of four trenches across the line of a Roman Road, which was known to exist to the east of the site and was projected to cross the area of development. The purpose of the trenches was to identify and establish the nature, extent, chronology and preservation of any archaeological deposits encountered, with particular reference to the Roman Road, and to establish whether any other archaeological deposits beyond the line of the road were present. The trenches were staggered along the projected line of the Roman road as it crossed the site, in order to evaluate the potential for any roadside development.
