In January 2019, Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological evaluation
for CgMs Heritage (part of the RPS Group) on behalf of Charterpoint
Developments at land at Craythorne Road, Rolleston on Dove, Staffordshire
(SK 24003 27434). The work comprised a LiDAR survey and ground truthing of
the results through trial trench evaluation. The works were carried out as part
of the planning condition for a proposed retirement development. A total of
five trenches were excavated targeted on specific impact areas of the
proposed development.
The site is relatively flat and low earthworks of ridge and furrow survive across
the area. Furrows were identified in three of the five trenches excavated, and
no other archaeological features were found. The results of the LiDAR survey
confirmed the presence of ridge and furrow across the site. No archaeological
features other than furrows were recorded within the trenches.
