During the end of October and early November 2013 Oxford Archaeology South undertook a trial trench evaluation on land at Tolgarrick Farm, Truro on behalf of Persimmon Homes South West. The evaluation consisted of 25 trenches measuring 50m by 2m, and one trench measuring 25m by 2m, and was in part targeted on the results of a geophysical survey. The evaluation uncovered two former hedge-bank field boundaries, one of which is shown on a map of 1844. Other features included a series of ditches which appeared from the geophysics to be part of a system of enclosures broadly aligned ENE-WSW and NNW-SSE, and focused in the eastern part of the site. The only dating evidence from these ditches was a fragment of furnace lining of prehistoric or Roman date. Other ditches were orientated NE-SW, but remain undated. Two clusters of postholes and several pits were also located, but no datable material was recovered from these.
