Introduction

Archaeological Works at St John's Church, Alkmonton, Derbyshire: Evaluation

Archaeological Research Services Ltd was appointed to undertake archaeological supervision at St John's Church, Alkmonton, Derbyshire, DE6 3DL. A watching brief was undertaken during the underpinning of church walls around the chancel and the excavation of trenches for the insertion of a new drainage system. The watching brief was undertaken as a requirement of the Heritage Lottery Fund's involvement in the development as advised by Historic England and as a requirement of the Diocesan Archaeological Advisor.

The aims and objectives of the project were to record the character and date of any surviving archaeological remains associated with the church, burials and memorials on the site and to record the nature, extent and date of any surviving archaeological remains associated with past secular activities on the site. Additionally, the specific aims of the watching brief were to identify and record the presence or absence of any archaeological features and deposits and to establish a relative sequence of events.
