Abstract:
Archaeological monitoring, excavation and recording were carried out during works within a garden behind The Liquid Room, a converted 19th century church at 9 Victoria Street. Two large medieval pits were revealed, both of which had been backfilled with soil incorporating domestic refuse, including 12th-14th century pottery, and metalworking residues indicating that smithing was carried out in the vicinity. Similar material was recovered from a medieval buried soil adjacent to the pits. The boundary walls surrounding the garden contained features, such as blocked-up doors and windows, which show that they originally formed parts of several buildings that can be recognised on early maps, one of which was standing in 1765.
