Chobham Park House, Chobham

Evaluation by K Anker of OA. Historic sources indicate that the house was once surrounded by a double moat in the medieval period, and evidence for the innermost of which was revealed in the form of a large, deep negative feature. The early deposits within the feature suggested that casual infilling began with the disposal of medieval material possibly related to a former property on the site, with the later sequence suggesting more concerted infilling from the 17th century onwards. The features were apparently finally filled and lost to view during works to extend the existing house in 1913.


xcavation by members of the Central South Eastern Young Archaeologists' Club, with the assistance of A Guinness of SCAU, of fifteen test pits within the historic settlement.

Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut

Watching brief by S Wilson of COT during geotechnical test pitting associated with the proposed redevelopment of Princess Royal Barracks. No archaeological features were identified within the test pits although they did reveal information about the character of the made-ground across the site, particularly in the south in the area once occupied by the military railway.

Land off Queens Road, Bisley

Evaluation by B Davis of WA revealed that the area was heavily truncated when the car park was constructed. A single linear ditch of probable post-medieval date contained a sherd of probable 17th century date, a fragment of post-medieval roof tile and a small quantity of iron slag, probably from iron smelting and most likely to be residual material of Iron Age or Romano-British date.
