Abstract:
Archaeological excavation by MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology), in advance of redevelopment at Potters Fields/One Tower Bridge, Southwark, has revealed evidence from the Late Iron Age/early Roman period and the post-medieval period. The findings on the site are set in context by geoarchaeological discussion of the changing landscape of Horsleydown Eyot in the Holocene. A number of erosional features and at least three possibly anthropogenic cut features of Late Iron Age to Roman date were found on the surface of the eyot. The site was evidently inundated, perhaps from the late Roman period onwards, and no archaeological features of medieval date were identified. A large stone ball, possibly shot from a bombard or large cannon, may be evidence of later medieval military activity. The most significant complex of features on the site was an arrangement of large timber-revetted ditches in the south-east, dated by finds to the 17th century. A large collection of artefacts, including imported pottery, was recovered from these ditches, providing evidence for activities in the local area.
