Introduction

Excavation at Guys Allotments, Exeter 1988 and 1996 (Exeter archive site 92)

A small trial excavation took place in the spring of 1988 on a disused allotment adjoining a proposed development site near the western edge of the floodplain of St Thomas. An interesting sequence of alluvial deposits, including waterlogged plant remains, was recorded.

An archaeological evaluation was carried out in 1996 in advance of house-building. Trenching and augering located an early river channel running through the site.
