Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Berrys on behalf of F C Jones
& Co to undertake a trial trench evaluation at the site of Starveall Farm,
Pamington, on which the construction of six poultry units, biomass boilers,
feed bins and associated development is proposed. The evaluation comprised
22 trenches (30m by 2m) which provided a minimum of 2% of the area of the
proposed development site. The trenches were located to investigate the
results of a 2018 geophysical survey of the site. The work was carried out over
five days between 3rd and 7th December 2018.
The results showed that the only features present were the remains of ridge
and furrow cultivation. Two phases of ridge and furrow were recorded, one
aligned east-west across the majority of the site and a NE-SW aligned phase
to the south of the site. These remains of arable cultivation may have
originated in the medieval period but artefactual evidence suggests that they
were gradually infilling into the post-medieval era. No other features of
archaeological origin were found within the site.
