Introduction

St James Park (Student Accommodation), Old Tiverton Road, Exeter. Archaeological Evaluation.

In January 2018, Cotswold Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation at St James Park, Old Tiverton Road, Exeter.

The evaluation identified an undated ditch, which was cut by a larger ditch containing artefacts dating from the late 16th-18th century. It is possible that the post-medieval ditch is associated with known Civil War siege works in the area, although no definitive correlation could be made.

It was clear from both trenches that the ground level across the site has been truncated into the natural substrate and then made up with modern levelling deposits, although an area of surviving subsoil was recorded.
