Abstract

The documentary study identified 25 sites of archaeological interest within the environs of the study area, few of which will be affected by the development. The site was considered to have high archaeological potential due to its proximity to the deserted medieval village of Sellergarth (Site 5), the precise location of which has, however, remained elusive.
The identified archaeological resource is generally of low significance. For the most part the trial trenching revealed evidence of a post-medieval agricultural landscape comprising a field drainage system, probably of nineteenth century origin. The evaluation also revealed three archaeological features comprising a modern pit and two natural features, interpreted as animal burrows.
