Abstract

In June 2005, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation as part of the West Coast Main Line upgrade between Tamworth and Lichfield in Staffordshire on behalf of Network Rail. A number of areas of this rail improvement have been designated to be of archaeological interest and this report concerns the zones known in the project known as Areas 22, 24 and 25. These are located mid-way between Tamworth and Whittington, where the railway crosses the river Tame (centred at NGR: SK 1860 0680). The evaluation revealed thick layers of alluvial deposits derived from the river Tame, post-medieval/modern field drains and service trenches and deposits associated with the construction of the nearby railway. A modern ditch and pit were also observed in the course of the work, as was a banked earthwork feature, possibly bank or former hedgerow feature of post-medieval date.
