TVAS Update - Summer 2000

Medieval Buildings at Quedgeley, Gloucester

Evaluation (trial) trenches indicated archaeology was confined to three areas within a large site at the former RAF Quedgeley in Gloucestershire. A strategy was devised which targetted these areas for detailed excavation prior to re-development. The work on these selected areas identified a medieval farming settlement with the remains of two buildings surrounded by a network of field boundaries which were reorganized on at least one occasion. The buildings were constructed with limestone rubble footings, which would have supported lighter walls made from wood or cob (a mix of clay, gravel and straw commonly used for rural buildings in the area).
