Archaeology Notes

NT58NE 66 centred on 5538 8531

NT 5538 8531 As a condition of planning consent an archaeological evaluation was undertaken on a gap site at 19-21 High Street. The evaluation involved the machine-excavation of 20m? of trial trenching, representing over a 10% sample of the proposed development area. During the course of the evaluation a series of site investigation test pits were also excavated by machine. These test pits revealed stratified anthropic deposits in excess of 2m depth.

The evaluation identified the remains of a buried garden soil and the remains of the 18th-century building that previously occupied the site, both of which overlay anthropic deposits of unknown function and date. The 18th-century building was associated with a slightly sunken floor, which truncated both the garden soil and the earlier deposits.
