Abstract or description

This book is the first in a new archaeological book series by the Centre of Archaeology, Staffordshire University and presents the results of the archaeological investigations completed at Dean Farm in Bishops Cleeve, Gloucestershire between 1999 to 2005 (Ordnance Survey National Grid coordinates SO 95610 28195). A series of trial trenches (Nichols 1999) identified the presence of Iron Age pits and ditches across the site. This evidence was further enhanced in 2000 by a geophysical survey (conducted by GSB Prospection), with the results suggesting a complex array of anomalies were present across the southern part of the area which may represent the buried remains of a large enclosed settlement and other associated features. Open area excavation covering 1.6 hectares was recommended by the County Archaeologist, undertaken by the former field unit Birmingham Archaeology for John Samuels Archaeological Consultants (on behalf of Bovis Homes) during the summer of 2005.
