Between 30th October and 1st November 2019, Oxford Archaeology undertook
an archaeological evaluation and metal detector survey at Site K1B,
Clayfurlong View, Kemble, Gloucestershire (NGR 398892 197637). A total of
five trenches were excavated which had been targeted to investigate
anomalies identified by a previous geophysical survey and to target the results
of the metal detector survey.
Two postholes and a small pit were recorded in one of the trenches, with no
features of an archaeological origin present in the other trenches. A small
assemblage of Iron Age pottery was recovered from each of the postholes.
Although the features do not relate to anomalies identified by the prior
geophysical survey, they are located within the same area. Therefore, even
though the results of the geophysical are not directly representative of the
remains found, they appear to be a good indicator of the areas of
archaeological activity within the site.
The results suggest the presence of Iron Age domestic activity, including a
structure within the vicinity of the proposed development area. However,
truncation through ploughing is likely to have limited the significance of any
further remains present.
