Abstract:
Prior to the re-development of a brownfield site on the corner of Weston Road and Uttoxeter Road, Meir, Stoke-on-Trent. Stoke-on-Trent Archaeology undertook an archaeological evaluation. The site was the former location of the imposing King's Arms public house built in 1935, an earlier incarnation of which had occupied the plot since at least the early 19th century. The evaluation was carried out between the 30th June and 7th July 2010. It involved the excavation of six trenches sited to investigate evidence of multi-period activity on the site, which was adjacent to a strategic crossroads established by the medieval period on the line of a Roman road. No pre-modern features or structural remains were, however, found during the project. Below the general overburden, the stratigraphy in all the trenches mainly comprised redeposited or disturbed natural subsoils, lying directly over undisturbed natural geology encountered at relatively shallow depths, especially in trench 6. The site had been subject to levelling and landscaping for both public houses and bowling green that were located within the area from at least 1840 to 2008.
