Abstract:
Evaluation trenches were excavated at 40 High Street, Whitchurch ahead of the proposed redevelopment of the interior of the structure. The evaluation site was known to be located within the known area of the Roman fort and later civilian settlement of Mediolanum, occupation continued into the Saxon and medieval periods. The trenches revealed a depth of 19th and 20th century demolition rubble and buried walls. This in turn overlay a thick deposit of cultivation soil, sealing a Romano-British horizon and a series of post-medieval and medieval pits to the rear of the plot. At the front of the building the thick deposit of soil was conspicuously absent, but a well-preserved sequence of post-medieval and medieval cobbled surfaces was revealed, along with the robbed remains of a substantial ashlar wall, the date of which could not be established.
