Abstract:
An Archaeological Watching Brief took place during garden improvement works within the site of St Botolph without Bishopsgate churchyard between the 6th of February and the 12th March 2012. The scheme included the excavation of open-cut trenching to accommodate new water and electricity routes on both the north and south sides of the churchyard. No archaeologically significant features or deposits relating to human burials were observed in trenching and there was evidence that the area had been subject to landscaping prior to the conversion of the grounds into a public open space. This entailed the importing of material in order to raise the ground levels, and was represented by a layer of dark-grey silt-clay containing frequent fragments of CBM, glass, terracotta plant pot, shell, and the occasional residual pot sherd; including one Roman rim sherd dating to the late 1st-2nd century AD, but with the majority being broadly datable to the 19th century. A single architectural fragment in the neo-classical style was recovered from trenching by the tennis courts and may be part of a door or window surround, (perhaps blasted from the church by the Bishopsgate bombing of 1993). The only in situ archaeology observed was a small section of brick wall aligned NW-SE within a trench crossing the central pedestrian path. This wall was made from 16th to early-17th century style brick, and was more than likely associated with earlier buildings that once fronted onto Bishopsgate as depicted on historic maps.
