Abstract:
An archaeological excavation at Dean House, Upper Dean Street, Birmingham (NGR 073 864) was commissioned by CgMs on behalf of DCD (Dean Street) in advance of proposed redevelopment of the site. CgMs carried out a desk-based assesment, and subsequently upon this, Birmingham University Field Archaeology Unit (BUFAU) was commissioned to undertake an excavation in April 2003. A square pit and post-holes of later post-medieval date were encountered, as well as water lain deposits, which may have marked the location of two former watercourses (Pudding Brook and Dirty Brook) which are thought to have crossed the site. It is possible that these watercourses were part of a system which included two medieval moats which were formerly located to the northeast and northwest of the site. A later deposit of dark earth was also and this may be equivalent to cultivation layers observed on other excavations close to Upper Dean Street. A 19th century brick-built culvert truncated the western end of the excavation. A considerable amount of overburden probably representing levelling and demolition layers were also observed.
