Abstract:
An Archaeological Watching Brief was carried out by University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS) at Ashby De-La-Zouch Castle, Leicestershire (NGR 359 166) during ground-works associated with the installation of eight information boards in and around the castle grounds. The site lies on the east side of Ashby town centre just south of the A511 (Market Street) and is accessed from South Street. The work involved the hand excavation of seven small pits for display boards each measuring approximately 700 mm by 700 mm and excavated to a depth of 100mm and a further pit for an orientation board, which measured 1800mm by 1400 mm and 200mm deep. One of the proposed display board pits was not excavated. The excavations removed turf and a small amount of soil in each hole and the impact was minimal. However archaeology in the form of demolition rubble was revealed in the excavated pit for display board 4 in the kitchen area. A linear feature was also recorded in the excavated pit for board 5. This was recorded but not excavated as the ground-works did not make any impact on the feature. The archive will be deposited with Leicestershire Heritage Services.
