Abstract:
Historic England has sponsored a thematic research project on a number of London's Elizabethan and Jacobean playhouses and bear baiting arenas. This element consists of Davies' Bear Pit, the last of the London bear baiting arenas to be built, c. 1660 - 1682. The remains are situated under present buildings at 58 and 60 Park Street and in Bear Gardens. It is also the last of the major polygonal amphitheatres to be built, and shows a clear development in form from earlier examples. There are associated deposits of animal bones related to the activities, as well as an ale-house mentioned in Pepys' diaries.
