Description

trench Two excavations were carried out on site in advance of development. Archaeological deposits on the site were found to be well preserved and where they were to be disturbed by development, were excavated in their entirety. The excavtions revealed that below the modern surface which was tarmaced, the archaeological deposits were found to be well preserved at a depth of as little as 0.25m below the modern ground surface. Contained within these deposits were found many phases of occupation which was mainly structural in form and showed how the site had developed from the 13th through to the 18th century. Nothing of significance was recorded dating to earlier periods due to the required depth of the excavation, which was 0.5m below the modern surface, was not expected. Although the deposits found were seen to be well preserved the environmental conditions at this site meant that any organic material was unlikely to have survived due to the lack of water logging.
