Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological excavation at Area 1,
Twigworth, Gloucester, in February to March 2019. The site is situated
immediately east of the possible course of the Gloucester to Tewkesbury
Roman road and 100m north‐west of a late Iron Age/early Roman settlement
found in an earlier evaluation. The excavation uncovered a double‐ditched
Roman trackway aligned north‐west to south‐east, at right angles to the
putative Roman road. An inhumation burial was recorded alongside the
northern ditch of the trackway. This produced no dating evidence but is likely
to also belong to the Roman period. Several intercutting ditches recorded in
the southern part of the site contained post‐medieval and modern material.
The Roman trackway was truncated by a number of north‐east to south‐west
aligned furrows which were recorded across the site.
