Introduction

97 London Road, Gloucester, Archaeological Evaluation, (OASIS ID: cotswold2-295466)

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in June 2017 at 97 London Road, Gloucester. One trench was excavated to the rear of the property, whilst two trenches were excavated within the existing cellar. Two Roman inhumations and a cremation burial were identified, along with broadly uniform cemetery soil deposits, dating to the mid 1st to late 4th centuries AD; these extended across the site at a consistent depth below present ground level. A ditch and structural remains were also identified which may also relate to Roman funerary practices in the area. Only limited truncation of cemetery remains was recorded within the trenches excavated within the cellar. In the external trench in the north of site, the Roman horizons were sealed by later agricultural and garden soil horizons which were cut by two medieval or post-medieval ditches.
