On 20th January 2020, Oxford Archaeology undertook a trial trench evaluation
on the site of a proposed residential development at Estcourt Road,
Gloucester. The works comprised the excavation of two trenches.
Archaeological remains were present in both trenches and comprised two
broadly parallel NNE-SSW aligned ditches, a north-south aligned ditch and a
cremation burial. The ditches are undated, with artefactual evidence limited
to animal bone. Pottery recovered from the surface of the cremation burial
has been dated to 1st-2nd century AD. The cremation burial was left in-situ.

Phase 2
This small excavation was mainly over the footprint of a recently demolished
building. The only archaeological feature uncovered was the edge of a 19th
century pit. The results suggest the area is on the periphery of the Roman
activity known in the vicinity of the site, although shallow archaeological
remains of this date may have been disturbed by the recently demolished
building on the site.
