Abstract

In June and July 2002 Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) undertook an archaeological evaluation on behalf of Jarvis, on land around Barker House Farm (centred at SD 4836
5694), in advance of the proposed construction of a South West Campus for Lancaster University. The work comprised a programme of trial trenching, designed to determine the
character and extent of the surviving archaeological resource within the area, involving the excavation of 77 trenches, which were typically 10m in length. The trenches were sited to give maximum coverage of the area, and targeted upon areas of greatest archaeological potential, as informed by a prior archaeological assessment (Neil 1995a; 1995b).
The trial trenching within the extent of the proposed South West Campus revealed evidence of a post-medieval agricultural landscape, comprising mainly field drainage and
field boundaries, and, to a lesser degree, clay extraction. These features are associated with the adjacent farms, Barker House and Brandrigg, which both have seventeenth century datestones. Many of the boundaries are shown on an estate map of 1769.
