Abstract:
The part-excavation of an accumulated layer of material was undertaken in the sub-floor compartments beneath the 18th-century drawing room of Delapré Abbey. Originally thought to be a centuries-long, gradual accumulation of material, the excavation has shown that it is more likely to have been a demolition deposit associated with 18th/19th century re-building of the south wing of the house. The excavation has revealed a length of wall that formed part of the 'lost' 16th -17th century south wing built by the Tate family after The Dissolution. A range of finds from the demolition layer around it include architectural fragments dating from the medieval abbey and that lost Post-Dissolution wing, together with fittings relating to its former post-medieval interior décor.
