Thames Valley Archaeological Services Occasional Paper 3

Middle Bronze Age and Middle Iron Age Occupation and Post-Medieval Limekilns at RAF Staff College, Broad Lane, Bracknell, Berkshire

by Jennifer Lowe

Occasional Paper 3 cover

An excavation within the grounds of the former RAF Staff College site, Bracknell revealed a number of features ranging in date from middle Bronze Age to post-medieval. Two phases of prehistoric activity were recorded: the middle Bronze Age represented by pits; and the middle Iron Age represented by pits, two ring gully structures, dated by radiocarbon, and field boundaries. A few sherds of medieval pottery point to only slight use of the site at this time. Much more activity was recorded for early post-medieval times with various ditched boundaries and pits, and an area of industrial activity dating from the mid 16th to 17th century which comprised two lime kilns and a well and may relate to the production of mortar for construction of Ramslade House which formed the original Staff College.

A4 soft cover, 24pp, illustrated throughout including 2 colour plates.
