Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was conducted by Archaeo-Environment Ltd during excavations of a trench for the foundations of a new garage to the rear of Melkridge House, Gilesgate, Durham. Gilegate is of considerable historic significance as a medieval suburb of Durham City, probably originating in 1112 when the Hospital of St Giles was founded. The hospital church of St Giles still survives, and became the parish church for the two row settlement that developed in the area. Although the surroundings have been substantially developed since the mid 19th century, form of Gilegate and associated burgage plots are sill well defined. Melkridge House is a double fronted property built around 1840, and faces onto the north side of Gilegate. It has a rear wing and a number of smaller more recent extensions, while a separate garden occupies the bugage plot. The watching brief provided no evidence of in-situ archaeological deposits of any significance, only revealing various layers of garden soil. It is recommended that further excavation within the immediate area of the garden of Melkridge House would be of limited value due to post medieval disturbance most likely associated with the construction of the house around 1840.
