Full Description

An archaeological evaluation undertaken at Burrow Farm, Wooton Courtenay, Somerset prior to alterations to the walled garden and the construction of a sand menage. A linear feature in Trench 4 was not excavated as development was not expected to disturb it. It may have represented a field drain or possibly the footings of a wooden building. Trench 8 contained three linear features that contained no dateable artefacts. They may have been trenches for sleeper beams of wooden buildings. [1] No features are recorded in this location on the Tithe Map for Wootton Courtenay, suggesting that the buildings predate this map. [2]
