Project Design for an Archaeological Survey and Evaluation at Bridge Farm, Ringmer, East Sussex

Produced by: David H Millum AIfA, MA, BA    

JUNE 2012

SUMMARY

This project design sets out the aims and methodology for an archaeological survey and evaluation at Bridge Farm, Ringmer, East Sussex. The archaeological survey and evaluation will be part of a larger community archaeological project, aimed at involving local members of the public, schools and special interest groups in the investigation, interpretation and management of their local heritage.

The project is being undertaken by the Culver Archaeological Project (CAP), a local archaeological group investigating the historic landscape of the UpperOuseValley in the parishes of Barcombe and Ringmer. CAP not only aims to conform to a high standard of archaeological research but also seeks to actively involve the local community in the discovery and interpretation of their local history and archaeology.

The Bridge Farm site was discovered in 2011 during a programme of geophysical and field walking surveys. The results show what appears to be a substantial Romano-British settlement site, with evidence of roads and enclosures, surmounted by a large ditch of possible military origin. As yet no intrusive investigation has been undertaken and the full nature and extent of the below ground archaeology is unknown.
