Abstract:
Oakford Archaeology (OA) carried out archaeological recording between June and September 2011, at the former Artful Dodger public house, Cowley Bridge Road, Exeter. This was one of a group of historic properties within the Red Cow area. The layout of the house perpetuates that of an earlier house, possibly of late 17th- or 18th-century date, some fragments of which were reused in the present building (now demolished). The construction of some of the later fabric of the house, with timber lacing throughout the masonry, is typical of the early 19th century and corresponds with the documentary evidence for the construction or perhaps more accurately rebuilding of these houses in 1810. The front range of the house was rebuilt and extended in the mid-19th century with a new, timber-framed frontage and new range of buildings along the eastern side. Although the side range was probably a complete rebuilding, the evidence of earlier stone walls in the rear walls reveals direct continuity with an earlier building. The property survived the late 19th and early 20th centuries with relatively little alteration, possibly because it remained in residential use and was not acquired by a commercial developer or identified for slum clearance by the Local Authority. The rear range of the house was partly demolished and rebuilt in the mid 19th-century and, although altered, retained many features of interest, including evidence of daisy wheels and an early stone fireplace. Evaluation trenches were undertaken after demolition but revealed no evidence of pre 19th century occupation or activity.
