Abstract

In September 2004, Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological field evaluation at the former Sandwell College, Woden Road South, Wednesbury near Birmingham (NGR SO 3990 2940. The work was undertaken for John Samuels Archaeological Consultants on behalf of Bellway Homes. The evaluation was carried out with a view to target a known Roman Road and a river crossing, which was predicted to pass close to the site of the college. The results of the evaluation, however, revealed that modern industrial and mining activity had largely re-modelled the landscape here, including the hillside to the south of the site. The north end of the site had been truncated and subsequently used for landfill, prior to construction of the College in the early 1970s.
