Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in fulfilment of a condition attached to planning consent. The evaluation revealed significant archaeological remains at between 0.32m and 1.48m below current ground level across much of the site. These had, in general, been heavily truncated by 19th and 20th century ground reduction and so survived in only a partial state. A single pit was dated by pottery to the Bronze Age and may have indicated only limited activity. More extensive remains indicated a settlement of early to middle Saxon date. The latter represented important evidence for the early development of Kingston. Pits of possible 11th to 13th century date demonstrated activity on the site into the later medieval period although this was not associated with buildings. Extensive, and in places deep, layers of soil and building rubble indicated both truncation and dumping across the site during the recent past. The evidence suggested three zones of predicted archaeological survival, with the highest survival in a band running from the south-west corner of the site across the central part. [Au(abr)]
