Abstract:
A watching brief was carried during the excavation of trial trenches for engineering purposes, at a site where an evaluation in 1989-90 had revealed evidence of medieval and post-medieval dumping associated with land reclamation, and timber structures which may have represented the remains of terrace revetments. The 1997 monitoring was undertaken in order to further assess the extent and form of potential archaeological survival at the site. The observations suggested that a considerable volume of archaeological deposits may have been removed on the eastern side of the site, where extensive foundations up to 6.4m square were recorded. The full depth of these foundations was unknown, but appeared to be at least 2.0m. The column foundations on the western side of the site, where observed, were somewhat smaller, but may have resulted in even narrower strips of archaeological survival in some cases. It was noted that the 1989-90 test-pits had shown that the depth of surviving archaeological deposits on the site increased towards the east, reflecting the topographical slope of the west bank of the Fleet. Some of the deposits noted during the watching brief may have represented the fills of cut features. [AIP]
