Archaeological Evaluation (20 June 2013 - 25 June 2013)

NT 2724 7676 A trial trenching evaluation was carried out, 20–25 June 2013, prior to a proposed residential development on a brownfield site. A total of seven trenches covering 7% (479m2) were excavated across the site. The demolition of the buildings associated with the active use of Albert Docks and the travelling cranes had been extensive and comprehensive. Barring the survival of the actual Albert Docks frontage there only remained a small area of survival in the SW corner of the site. This consisted of areas of cobbling and train tracks, which were cleaned and recorded.
