Abstract:
Before groundwork started for the skate park, the site was characterised by a clear broad bank running across it, approximately parallel with the Fosse Way. This was a southerly continuation of low bank recorded during excavations in 1974 and which overlay the site of the Roman buildings fronting the Roman road. Its origins may have been a debris from those buildings or as upcast material from a post-medieval boundary ditch along the east side of the Fosse. The top of this bank was removed to a depth of 0.30m in the northern part of the present excavation, but barely disturbed elsewhere. It comprised a mixture of clay loam and rubble which included post-medieval pottery as well as Romano-British material. In the north-east part of the area, areas of solid stone rubble were exposed beneath it, possibly reflecting the lines of walls, but there was sufficient leeway within the scheme to allow these to be left completely undisturbed. Archaeological cleaning was not carried out beyond establishing the importance of the layers as intact stratified deposits overlying the site of Romano-British buildings. The archaeological observation demonstrated the presence of Romano-British structures along the Fosse Way at this point and it was likely that the stratigraphy and sequence of deposits excavated in 1974 was continued some distance south. These deposits were sealed beneath the skateboard facility. [Au(adp)]
