Description

Most of the contexts seen during the watching brief were probably relatively modern in date. The only exceptions would be a possible build-up/levelling deposit and old road surface, even these need be of no great age since there was plentiful photographic evidence of such surfaces surviving well into the20th century, especially in the less busy roads such as Bishophill Junior and Fetter Lane. Despite the trench passing directly beside the boundary wall of the graveyard of St. Mary’s Church, believed tohave been larger in the past, no disturbed human bone was noted from the trench at any point and it appeared that modern service excavations did not disturb any burials from the presumed enlarged graveyard in the area of the works. It was therefore stated that no archaeological remains were disturbed during the works.
