Description

Within the 500m study area significant Roman funerary archaeology is present particularly on The Mount/Driffield Terrace and Trentholme Drive/Former Newington Hotel sites. There is a possibility for burials of this period to be present. The proposed development site in later periods appears to have been agricultural land until it was converted to sports fields in the 20th Century. Ridge and Furrow is visible on a 1932 aerial photograph; however it was not visible during walkover study or during a watching brief on geotechnical investigations. It is possible that the field was partially levelled when it was converted to a sports field.
