Abstract:
In January 2015, Compass Archaeology Ltd. conducted an archaeological field evaluation on land to the front and rear of 1 Riches Road, Ildord, IG1 1JH. The evaluation was conducted prior to redevelopment of the site as a basemented, 8- storey block of flats, within commercial properties on the ground floor. The evaluation involved the excavation of 3 trial trenches with an additional 4 exploratory sondages dug into the natural brickearth to establish the presence or non-presence of prehistoric mega faunal remains, many of which have been found in the surrounding area. On this occasion the evaluation revealed no archaeologically significant features and demonstrated that the site had been largely stripped of historic land surfaces prior to its development in the late 19th century as part of the wider late-Victorian expansion of Ilford. No archaeological evidence for pre-20th century activity was observed. A single, early-20th century rubbish pit was exposed in the southeast corner of the site, in Trench 2. Natural brickearth was observed across the site from c0.50m to 0.75m below existing ground levels, equal to 11.47mOD in the west and 11.37mOD to 11.29mOD in the east of the site. Sterile deposits of brickearth were recorded continuing for at least a further 2.84m, (Trench 2), and beyond.
