Abstract:
Monitoring took place during construction of a children's play area in Tower Gardens, close to a standing section of the City Wall (SAM LO14). The site overlies the line of the external ditch, which was infilled in the earlier 17th century and subsequently developed. Following wartime bomb damage the site was cleared and the present Gardens laid out. Groundworks included five foundation pits 700-800mm deep, plus surface stripping for paths. These revealed a shallow layer of imported topsoil, overlying made ground and building rubble that was probably derived from post-war demolition. Four pits revealed a concrete surface of late 19th century+ date, which construction and map evidence suggest to be parts of an external yard. No earlier deposits or features were exposed, and there were no significant archaeological finds.
