Abstract:
In September 2003 Birmingham Archaeology carried out a desk-based assessment of a site in Birmingham City Centre lying to the north of Albert Street and Curzon Street, and between Bartholomew Row to the west and the Digbeth Branch canal to the east (centred on NGR. SP 078872). The work was undertaken on behalf of GVA Grimley and is the latest in a series of archaeological assessments occasioned by plans to regenerate the eastern part of the city. The current site has been propsed for the creation of a City Park to the northeast of the proposed new Library of Birmingham. The site is currently occupied by a number of industrial and commercial properties as well as an extensive open area, including car parks in front of Millenium Point. The study area remained rural until the mid 18th century. Housing development began to take place from around 1750 and the canal was constructed in 1790 but the main period of development was the second quarter of the 19th century.
