Abstract:
A phased refurbishment was carried out in 2014-2016 of the Base Court toilets at Hampton Court Palace; this particular phase of the project during the summer/autumn months of 2016 involved refurbishing the ladies facilities located in the southern cloister in Apartment 19 and the disabled toilet in Apartment 36 in the eastern cloister. The project required an archaeological watching brief in order to monitor the removal of the modern fixtures and the excavation of three trenches; Trench I in Room GF055 and Trench II in Room GF051, both of which were in Apartment 19, and Trench III in the passageway between the Mantegna Gallery and the Palace building. The removal of the modern fixtures, particularly in Room GF055, revealed a number of historical features, the earliest of which included several sections of Tudor brickwork and a Tudor fireplace in room GF055. These newly exposed architectural elements are original features associated with the Wolsey Period between 1514 and 1521. Later features were also exposed, including a limestone paved floor surface, which was uncovered beneath the modern fixtures in Room GF048 (southern cloister). The floor was associated with the early c.18th timber panelling on the east-facing elevation of this narrow space. Located on the east-facing elevation in Room GF055 adjacent to the doorway through to GF053, was a pencil drawing of daisy-wheels - a typical pattern seen in apotropaic marks, though this particular example was of c.20th century date, appearing on the post-1912 green painted panelling installed in front of the wall. On the same timber beam structure fixed against the same eastern-facing elevation were the remains of an early/mid-20th century patterned wall paper.
