Abstract

On the 22nd and 23rd of December 2016 Oxford Archaeology East were commissioned by Andrew Josephs Associates on behalf of Tarmac to carry out an archaeological evaluation on the south-eastern edge of Mancetter Quarry at the point the quarry workings abut the banks of Oldbury Camp, a scheduled ancient monument. The work was requested by Warwickshire County Council and Historic England to assess the condition of any remaining earthworks underlying the quarry spoil as an aid to inform the detail of any restoration work in the area closest to the monument. The work was carried out under a scheduled monument consent. The archaeological evaluation revealed a bank with visible formation layers and possible consolidation and tip lines into the Monument's outer ditch. Evidence of truncation caused by remedial works undertaken in the mid to late 1980’s was also noted and the edge of the quarried area located.
