Description

A programme of demarcation, micrositing and watching brief was conducted by CFA Archaeology in 2013 during the installation of poles for the Etteridge to Boat of Garten Electricity Rationalisation – New Overhead Line Southern Section (Etteridge to Ruthven). Sites were demarcated or avoided by construction traffic and ground breaking works and micrositing took place within the confines of engineering constraints to avoid directly impacting upon any upstanding archaeological remains. Targeted watching briefs were undertaken at a number of sites where ground breaking works were in close proximity to upstanding archaeological features, and of which seven test pits were excavated under archaeological supervision. No buried archaeological features or deposits were identified during the watching briefs, and the upstanding archaeological features remained unaffected. <1>
