Archaeological monitoring and recording was undertaken in May 2018 during the groundworks for a new dwelling.<1>
Approximately 47m of foundation trenches and a soakaway were machine excavated by the building contractor under the supervision of an archaeologist. The trenches measured c.0.5-0.6m wide x 1.6m deep, and the soakaway 2m x 1.5m and 1.6m deep. The entire width of the central ditch of the Triple Dyke (F1) was revealed during monitoring, sealed beneath c.0.25m of topsoil, and measured 5.4m wide. The fill of the ditch (encountered during the monitoring) was described as a medium yellow/brown slightly loamy sandy-silt, containing abundant gravel and stone. No finds were recorded. A small undated pit (F2) was identified in the soakaway.
The monitoring followed a trial trenched evaluation in March 2018 (ECC4162).<2>
