Abstract:
The work initially comprised excavation of eighteen evaluation trenches across the site in order to determine the potential, presence, extent, depth, state of preservation and importance of any potential archaeological remains identified from UMAU's Desk Based Assessment of 2005 and in accordance with the brief issued by the Assistant County Archaeologist. The evaluation led to the open area excavation of the area between Clowes Street and Barlow's Croft. The evaluation revealed that across most of the uncellared areas of the site an intact late Medieval/early post-Medieval ploughsoil survived with the remains of 18th and 19th century buildings cut into it. Within the open area excavation an early post-Medieval garden soil overlay the Medieval ploughsoils. This contained a large amount of diagnostic early post-Medieval pottery. Two burgage ditches were cut through the plough soils representing continuous use of the original Medieval property boundaries throughout the Medieval and post-Medieval periods along with a stone wall which may be the original boundary of Medieval Salford. A series of late 18th century workers houses had been built above this with what appeared to be a small late 18th century workshop for some kind of cottage industry. Alongside this was a late 18th/early 19th century small factory which is later described as a gum and starch factory. Two basements of 19th century tenements were uncovered alongside the 18th century workers houses.
