Abstract:
A trial trenching evaluation was undertaken by CFA archaeology in land at 7c Devon Place in advance of a proposed residential development. Ten trenches were excavated, amounting to 398m2 (7.8%) of the development site. Modern overburden deposits of brick rubble and Type 1 makeup were removed to reveal generally one or two deposits of earlier made ground. The remains of modern pink crushed sand brick and concrete walls were found in three trenches to the west of the site, cutting through the soil deposits and into natural. Two phases of drainage system were identified: a more recent system represented by quarried sandstone rubble drains found cutting through the lowest made ground level, and an earlier phase represented by field clearance rubble drains and ceramic drains, found beneath this deposit and cut directly into natural. A possible shallow furrow was identified running across the western end of Trench 2. The remains of a possible masonry wall foundation consisting of two mortared cut yellow sandstone slabs were found slightly cut into natural in Trench 5. This feature may relate to 19th century buildings present on the site associated with the South Coates Cabinet Works. No other features of archaeological significance were identified during the evaluation. Helena Gray (CFA Archaeology Ltd) 2012.
