Abstract

In June 2004 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at Gedling, Nottinghamshire on behalf of John Samuels Archaeological Consultants. The work was undertaken in advance of road improvements for the A612 at Gedling. The evaluation located organic deposits, indicating the presence of possible palaeochannels, at the northern extent of Area D and southern extent of Area B. Subsequent radiocarbon dating and pollen assessment indicates the organic deposits formed during the Mesolithic to earlier Neolithic periods. The organic deposits were sealed by a layer of minerogenic alluvium which extended over a large part of the site. No other evidence of significant archaeological remains was encountered.
