Bald Faced Stag, 36 Edward Street, Southampton. South and east elevations, looking north-west.

The project was an archaeological building record, to level 2, of the cellar of the Bald Faced Stag public House at 36 Edward Road in the Freemantle area of Southampton. The public house dates from the 1870s when it was known as the 'Stag Inn'. Stylistic and map evidence suggests that the upper stories may have been rebuilt at some time between 1896 and 1909. The bricks used in the cellar were smaller than those of the ground floor, perhaps indicating that the cellar belonged to the original building phase of the 1870s. The cellar was originally accessed by a brick staircase at the north end, but this was replaced by a wooden stair against the west wall. This change may either have occurred during the refurbishment/rebuilding of about 1900, or when the bar area was reformed, probably in 1965.

The physical archive has been deposited at Southampton City Museum with the accession/site code SOU1571.
