Abstract

proposed housing development on land to the west of Southam Road, Radford Semele, Warwickshire on the 24th and 25th November 2016. The evaluation, which comprised seven trenches, formed a 4% sample of the 1.0ha site. The trenching followed a desk-based assessment and geophysical survey, neither of which had identified any archaeological features within the site. The main identified potential was for medieval archaeological evidence, as the site lies in close proximity to the historic core of Radford Semele, including the medieval parish church of St Nicholas. The early 17th century manor house, Radford Hall, lies immediately east of the application site and is likely to have been the site of the medieval manor house. The traces of a shrunken medieval settlement lie to the south of the church. No archaeological features or artefacts were recorded in any of the trenches, and the site appears to have no potential for significant archaeological discoveries.
