Abstract:
An evaluation was carried out at a proposed development site. It had been intended to excavate two test-pits in the southern part of the basement of the standing building at the site. However, due to space limitations, one larger pit was opened. A series of dump layers containing Roman pottery, some of which also contained considerable amounts of charcoal and shell, were recorded. Further dump layers contained Roman pottery and large amounts of demolition material. A thin spread of demolition rubble, interpreted as a consolidation layer, was also recorded. Evidence of intermittent activity between the dumping episodes was found in the form of Roman pits and a stake-hole. The Roman sequence was sealed by a probable dark earth layer. It was recommended that the archaeological deposits beneath Magpie House should be excavated in advance of any groundworks, if preservation in situ proved to be impossible. [AIP]
