Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) at the site of the Royalty Theatre, between City Road and Russell Street, Chester (SJ 3405 3665), in May 2002. The work was commissioned by Joseph Finney Plc and took place in advance of ground disturbance over an area of c 1500 square metres. The aim of the evaluation was to investigate and characterise the extent and survival of archaeological deposits across the designated area. The work comprised the excavation of three linear trenches and six test pits. Documentary evidence indicated that during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Russell Street frontage was occupied by working class housing associated with the first phase of industrialisation of Chester. The evaluation trenches and test pits revealed the following: ROMAN: no features, but redeposited 2nd century pottery indicating some Roman presence nearby. MEDIEVAL: remains of structures indicated by walling and rubbish pits, showing the presence of medieval buildings and occupation in this area. POST-MEDIEVAL: industrial remains, probable tanning pits, and possible kiln/furnace debris, all with good dating evidence. EIGHTEENTH CENTURY COTTAGES: remains of 18th and 19th century structures.
