Abstract:
The Archaeology Unit of Southampton City Council carried out an archaeological watching brief on a gas trench at the northern end of Fratton Road, Portsmouth on behalf of their client, Portsmouth City Council. 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 area is defined principally as one of importance for medieval and post-medieval archaeology. The natural was observed between 0.60m and 0.85m below the surface along the entire trench. A gravel road surface shows where Church Road once met Fratton Road suggesting that Church Road extended further east and that the west edge of Fratton Road was located further east. A series of brick and limestone footings were observed along the length of the trench and were the remains of tenements along Fratton Road. The footings run at a different angle to the modern day Fratton Road suggesting that the road ran more northeast-southwest and was further east than its present position. One pit was observed, it contained several cow metacarpals and metatarsals, fragments of brick, a fragment of 18/19th century Verwood pottery and fragments of 19th century glass. No archaeology was observed from a point slightly beyond the northern driveway to the vicarage to just before number 247 Fratton Road.
