Abstract:
The Archaeology Unit of Southampton City Council carried out an archaeological watching brief at 61 St Thomas's Street, Portsmouth on behalf of their client CG McCann. A total of four trenches were dug in the basement of 61 St Thomas's Street during alterations to the existing Grade II listed building, of 18th century date. Two pits, possibly soakaways, were observed below the limestone floor; they were filled with limestone blocks, mortar and fragments of post-medieval brick, and were very wet. A floor of limestone flags may have been the original cellar floor. Later floors had attempted to keep out the rising watrer table.
