Abstract:
Between 15th and 19th November 2012 an archaeological watching brief was conducted in the former churchyard of St Botolph without Bishopsgate. The watching brief took place during garden improvement works being carried out by The City Of London Corporation Open Spaces Department, which included the felling, excavation and replacement of two trees. The two tree pits were in opposing ends of the graveyard; Pit 1 in the SE corner and Pit 2 immediately SW of the Church and SE of St Botolphs Church Hall. Pit 1 revealed a made ground deposit representing re-worked soil associated with the creation of the mid 19th-century gardens. Pit 2 exposed a grave marker directly below the existing tree root ball, and another marker was exposed in section in the SW corner of the pit. The grave markers had been deliberately buried below 500mm of imported subsoil associated with the raising of the beds and creation of the mid 19th-century gardens. The larger of the slabs exposed had discernable text engraved on it relating to at least two individuals and the second marker is believed to have been the southern end of a slab exposed in excavations by MOLA in 2010. Between January 14th and 16th 2013 a further watching brief was conducted on drainage improvement works, which included two narrow drainage channels SW of the fountain draining into a new soakaway near the SE corner of the tennis courts. These excavations revealed 300mm of existing garden topsoil in the channels and pit, and a further 1.2m of reworked garden and graveyard soil within the soakaway pit.
