Rodney Stoke Church 2012

An Archaeological Watching Brief at St Leonard’s Church, Rodney Stoke

An archaeological watching brief undertaken during ground works prior to the installation of a new septic tank for St Leonard’s Church Hall recovered pottery and building materials of Romano-British date from a small drainage ditch and a pit or ditch which cut it. A review of archaeological activity in the vicinity of the church confirms occupation in and around Rodney Stoke from the prehistoric and Romano-British periods. Topographic studies, place-names and map analysis add credence to the suggestion that Roman buildings may have been built close to the site of the medieval
parish church.
