Abstract:
Border Archaeology carried out a programme of archaeological observation on behalf of Markey Builders (Gloucester) Ltd at 32 London Road. Significant Roman archaeology was located in almost every area of the site observed and included pits, ditches and rich material finds ranging from locally produced and imported regional and overseas pottery (including sherds of Gaulish samian ware and Spanish amphorae) to surviving iron nails and animal bone. A small melon bead was also located within Roman deposits. In addition, Stage 1 of the watching brief identified a series of stakes apparently forming two structures within the NE part of the site and a substantial alignment of 23 stakes which may have formed part of a structure or boundary fence. By far the most important of the finds located on the site, however, were a series of deposits forming part of a Roman metalled road surface (identified in Stage 2) extending from the known Roman route underlying what is now London Road. These deposits are potentially very significant as they indicate the possibility of considerate Roman activity immediately outside the known extent of the Roman town and within the immediate vicinity of the site during the late 1st / early-mid 2nd century AD.
