Abstract:
The Archaeology Unit of Southampton City Council carried out an archaeological watching brief at 150-156 Fratton Road, Portsmouth associated with the construction of new housing units on behalf of their clients, Portsmouth Housing Association. The site is within Local Area of Archaeological Importance 3. This area is a long north-south strip along Fratton Road covering the area of the medieval settlements of Fratton at its south end and Buckland/Kingston at its north. The aims of the investigation were principally to investigate the presence or absence of human use of the area, and the date, type, state of preservation, and extent of that use; to recover associated objects; and to record such evidence as did survive. In addition, the nature, dimensions, and relationship of natural deposits were to be noted and recorded. A total of 27 trenches were dug. The earliest archaeological evidence was from the 16th-17th century and consisted of two pits situated near the centre of the site. Other 18th century rubbish pits were found. 19th century pottery, a stoneware bottle, bricks, and cellars suggest the site was built up in that period.
