In March 2019 Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by RPS Group on
behalf of Miller Homes to undertake a trial trench evaluation at the site of a
proposed residential development at Streethay, Lichfield. The evaluation
consisted of 31 trenches which represent a 4% sample of the 9.1ha proposed
development area. The trenches were targeted on features identified in a
previous geophysical survey and were designed to provide good coverage of
the site.
The evaluation revealed no significant archaeological remains and produced
little in the way of finds. A few abraded sherds of Roman pottery were
recovered from a truncated pit in Trench 8, but no other Roman or earlier
activity was identified. An undated boundary ditch running through Trenches
17 and 19 probably represented a post-medieval field boundary as did similar
features in Trench 27. The trenching confirmed that the main field boundaries
mapped within the geophysical survey were of modern date. Based on the
results of the evaluation the site is considered to have little or no
archaeological interest.
