Introduction

Peartree House, Peartree Road, Southampton. Archaeological Watching Brief (SOU1687)

The Archaeology Unit of Southampton City Council carried out a watching brief at Peartree House from 05/01/2016 to 20/01/2016. Natural gravel was observed some 980mm below the surface, in the deeper trenches. Above it was natural brickearth some 600mm below the surface. Three features and two layers have been dated to the post medieval/early modern periods. These consisted of part of the foundations of Peartree House; a layer that contained fragments of pottery and clay pipe dating from the middle of the 17th century to the early 18th century; a 17th century brick-and-limestone-built drain; and a 19th century brick-and-slate-built drain.
