This evaluation excavation was carried out as part of a Scheduled Monument Consent requirement for Longtown Castle and Town [County Monument Hereford and Worcester 20]. The consent relates to a proposed dwelling in a vacant plot to the north of the Castle [NGR SO 321 293]
The purpose of the evaluation was to determine the extent, depth, nature and date of the archaeological deposits. The results could then be used in the design of a proposed dwelling to preserve the site’s archaeological integrity.
