Phase Site Investigations has assisted with an ongoing research project at an archaeological site in Street House, Cleveland. The site is of national importance as excavations have identified a major Saxon burial site, with one grave of such high status that the occupant must have been the equivalent of a king.
Earlier geophysical survey and excavation work by Teesside Archaeological Society had established that the burial site lay within a wider archaeological complex which contained features dating from the Iron Age through to the Saxon period.
Our geophysical survey covered an area of 6.2 ha identifying several new areas of archaeologcial activity, as well as helping to define the outer extents of the archaeological complex.
Phase was pleased to be able to volunteer our services and be part of this exciting research project. This work was part of our ongoing commitment to training and research-based geophysical surveys.
