Abstract:
Archaeological monitoring of the final stages of the demolition work and the removal of the foundations took place. In the course of the removal of the foundations the site was reduced to a depth of between 0.8m and 1.2m. Two test pits were excavated by machine under archaeological supervision in order to explore the potential for archaeology at greater depth. This first significant archaeological horizon consisted of various pits, some of substantial size and depth. From these pits were recovered fragments of ceramic and metal work which could be provisionally dated to the 13th or 14th centuries or the High Medieval Period. The finds recovered at this level also included a face mask jug. A second significant archaeological horizon was also located sloping down from the south-west corner of the site to the north-east. Fragments of medieval ceramic were recovered from this layer although no structural remains or features were observed.
