Abstract

Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a geophysical survey and an archaeological field evaluation of a proposed development site at Dryleaze Farm, south of Siddington, Gloucestershire on behalf of Hills Aggregates Ltd in October and November 2001. The evaluation revealed archaeological features and deposits within four of the six fields investigated. In Field 5, in the south-west of the site, three ring ditches were located, one with an associated central feature. In addition, a possible pit alignment, an area of Iron Age occupation and a Roman trackway were identified. In Field 6, to the north, a continuation of the Roman trackway was located, and two clusters of undated archaeological activity. The courses of two palaeochannels were also confirmed. In Field 1 two clusters of archaeological activity dated to the Iron Age were located in the centre and north of the field. In the southern end of Field 2, in the south-east of the proposed development area, there were undated archaeological features sealed by peat and alluvial deposits
