Abstract:
The Archaeology Unit of Southampton City Council carried out an archaeological evaluation excavation at East Shore School, Eastern Road, Portsmouth on behalf of George Wimpey Southern Counties Ltd. Boreholes had shown that in the northern part of the site the old ground surface was generally between 1.3m and 2m below the present surface, but in the southern part of the site proposed groundworks were likely to extend into the old ground surface. The southern part was therefore evaluated. Three trenches were opened in the south-west part of the site covering a total of 60m2 - comprising a 2% sample of that part of the site. The evaluation uncovered a scatter of prehistoric evidence followed by evidence for the post-medieval and early modern use of the area as fields before the area was developed in the 20th century. Unstratified and residual finds included burnt flints, a flint flake, and a sherd of 16th or 17th century Normandy stoneware. Other ceramics comprised 18th to 20th century pottery, tobacco pipes, and building material. The low level of finds at the East Shore School evaluation suggests that further archaeological work will not be necessary.
