Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was carried out as part of a combined archaeological and geotechnical investigation in advance of the redevelopment of the site. Due to the thickness of the sub-basement slab, a number of the proposed pits were abandoned. The final number of interventions consisted of one borehole, three geotechnical pits and coring of the sub-basement slab at three locations. The sub-basement slab was far thicker than anticipated, with truncation up to 3.5m below the level of the surface of the natural subsoil. There was consequently only a very small possibility that the bases of deep cut features could have survived in this area. The evaluation revealed archaeological deposits of Roman date below the vehicle ramp at the west end of the site, with the highest surviving deposits at c.14.10OD. This suggested that a maximum 2.10m sequence of deposits may have survived in places below the ramp and outside of the existing sub-basement. The report concluded that the impact of the proposed redevelopment was likely to be extremely low in the area of the sub-basement. However, there was likely to be some, albeit limited, impact on surviving archaeological deposits from groundworks associated with the new single basement at the west end of the site. [Au(abr)]
