Our North Midlands office have been excavating a site in Gloucestershire. The site was identified by aerial photography and previous work had been carried out on a series of crop-marks in the area.The area of interest for TVAS was a small 50mx50m area containing a previously unexcavated crop-mark.
The excavation revealed a barrow with a diameter of 25m. The ditch section of this barrow was c.0.5m deep and c.1.6m wide and was a complete circuit of the barrow.
The barrow contained only a single cremation which was in an large ceramic vessel. Outside of the barrow, to the south, several more truncated cremations were uncovered.
The site and finds are currently being analysed in preparation for a report.
