Abstract:
An archaeological Watching Brief was undertaken by AOC Archaeology Group at the Wheatsheaf Inn, Bridge Road, Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. PO41 0PH . 1.2 The natural geological deposits across the site were sterile sands and gravels. All features, deposits and layers of made ground found appear to be late post medieval in date (19th or 20th centuries). The earliest feature in Trench 1 was a wall of red brick aligned north south with an east-west return. This was constructed on a rubble-built foundation to the east of which was a north-south aligned red brick box culvert. These two structures are possibly part of a 19th century building which lay northwest of the Wheatsheaf. Several layers of made ground and imported Victorian garden soil also relate to this first phase of construction, above which was a second phase of development consisting of the construction of a small garden wall and brick surface, all of which was capped by modern made ground and the current patio surface. The earliest feature in Trench 2 was the existing 18th century wall and a pile of mudstone rubble, possibly a wall foundation of an earlier structure, although there was no artiefactual evidence to support this. Over this was a layer of made ground also dating to the 18th century and a mortar rich layer of demolition or construction trample. Built on this was a north-south aligned red brick wall. A later addition using original 18th century bricks, this was sealed below a demolition layer and caped by the current concrete floor of the Wheatsheaf Inn. No archaeological remains from earlier periods were discovered in either trench. .
