Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation comprising trial excavation was undertaken on a small area of open ground adjacent to Grey''s House. The immediate area contains evidence of human activity extending from the Mesolithic to the post-medieval period. Nearby is the site of Kempston Manor, which has revealed evidence of Saxo-Norman structures and boundaries. Previous investigations in the area have also exposed substantial dumps of modern material, which were used to raise the level of the ground. A single trench was opened revealing between 0.4 and 0.55m of compact dumps of modern building debris immediately below a shallow topsoil and turf horizon. Directly below these dumps was undisturbed natural strata. This would indicate that as part of a construction programme, probably associated with the building of the school, the ground level was reduced to the undisturbed natural strata
