A preliminary survey plan is available below following the archaeological work on the Taunton Road Development site; the blue shaded features are ditches and pits. As you can see, we recorded a large enclosure ditch and an intensive scattering of pits, as well as a few smaller ditches. Pottery sherds recovered from these features dated to the Bronze Age (i.e. 2400 BC – 700 BC).
The post-excavation analysis and reporting phase is now taking place, wherein the pottery, environmental samples, etc., from the site are looked at more closely to try to discern the function of the archaeological features. The end result will be a report on the excavation results. This process will take a number of months.
