Abstract:
Portsmouth Housing Association wished to construct flats on land to the north of the vicarage associated with St Mary's Church Fratton, Portsmouth, Hampshire (NGR 6500 0090). The site was adjacent to the Glebe Hall. An archaeological watching brief was required by Portsmouth City Council (planning reference 07/01233/FUL) to ensure that any archaeologically significant remains uncovered by the development were recorded. Southampton City Council Archaeology Unit carried out the work on behalf of Brymor Contractors Ltd. 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. Fratton is thought to take its name from a Saxon 'Frodda'. The mother church for the whole Portsea Island area was St Mary which was endowed in 1164. The Manor of Fratton was in existence by the mid-13th century. The site was situated within the glebe lands of the nearby parish church, thought to have Saxon origins, but nothing of great archaeological interest was observed. The London Clay was situated 0.6m below the surface and was at least 1.1m thick. The weathered natural contained a fragment of burnt flint and above it the topsoil contained finds from the 19th century.
