Description

Interim evaluation; mitigation survey An evaluation was undertaken on the service yard / car park to the rear of Spurriergate in advance of a proposed development. The evaluation consisted of two 3x3 trenches, excavated to a depth of 1.3m. Trench 1 was adjacent to Peter Lane and Trench 2 was in the car park area.The earliest phases encountered were residual Roman building material and pottery and Anglo-Scandinavian occupation deposits. These contained waterlogged deposits of leather-working debris and spindle whorls, wood, post-and-wattle walling and organic remains. Above these early medieval deposits were the remains of a timber structure sealed by medieval pits. Mitigation by piling was recommended.
