In September 2012 Archaeological Research Services Ltd was commissioned by URS Infrastructure and Environment UK Ltd to undertake an archaeological evaluation along a proposed onshore cable route from Dogger Bank Creyke Beck to the village of Ulrome, East Yorkshire. The evaluation was carried out prior to ground works for a cable route connecting two offshore wind farms to the National Grid at Creyke Beck. The first phase of the evaluation consisted of a total of 14 evaluation trenches targeted to specific geophysical anomalies at 11 sites between Ulrome and Cottingham. A further 11 sites may be investigated during 2013. The targeted trial trenching excavations for the first phase of the project revealed several features with archaeological significance, the most important of which was a ditch containing Roman pottery. This trench was located within Site 20 in the village of Beeford, an area in which there was previously no solid evidence of Roman activity. Potential medieval remains were also uncovered at the village of Ulrome at Site 21; however only a single small fragment of pottery was found and therefore minimal conclusions can be drawn from this without further excavation. Many of the trenches did not yield archaeological remains, and this may be due to these areas being part of the Humber Wetlands up until the 18th century, when large-scale drainage was undertaken. Habitation of these wetland areas was intermittent until this point, and therefore the amount of archaeological remains present is likely to be less. Further excavation of areas that showed archaeological features is recommended prior to major work, with continuous archaeological monitoring recommended for all other sites.
