Abstract

This desk-based archaeological assessment was commissioned by TEP (The Environment Partnership) on behalf of the Isle of Man Government Department of Local Government and the Environment (DoLGE) on 4 February 2008. The assessment forms part of a broader environmental impact assessment in support of a Development Order. The site is centred on SC 344 757 and largely consists of agricultural land, with some industrial and retail units. The assessment has been carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North). The work comprised the collection and assessment of information available from documentary and other sources, both published and unpublished. A site walkover was undertaken to enhance awareness of the context and assess the site’s potential to preserve archaeological remains. The National Monuments Record (NMR) maintained by Manx National Heritage (MNH) contains no entries which fall within the area of the scheme. The assessment has been able to show that this is a partial picture and that there are a number of reasons to be cautious about the archaeological potential of the area occupied by the scheme. These include prehistoric utilisation of resources within, or in the vicinity of the scheme, the persistence of medieval features and the presence of a complex of buildings belonging to a quarterland farm unit.
