The Archaeological Landscape of Frampton on Severn, Gloucestershire

This archive results from the combination of two ALSF projects. 1) The Archaeological Landscape of Frampton on Severn (ALSF 4625) :Gravel extraction in Frampton on Severn and adjacent parishes during the twentieth century resulted in the collection of archaeological finds, very few of which had been adequately published. In particular the excavation of five ring ditches at Netherhills Quarry, directed by Richard Atkinson in 1948, had not been written up. The project involved the examination...

Dendrochronology Database

This resource consists of the tree-ring dates for 3300 buildings in the United Kingdom, ranging from cathedrals to cottages and barns. The database holds period, location and reference information for each record. It also includes a few buildings that have been dated by high precision radiocarbon dating, and the names of buildings for which dating was attempted but not successful.

Former 'Merrie Monk' Public House, 34 New Street, Andover, Hampshire (OASIS id: wessexar1-94921)

An archaeological watching brief during the redevelopment of the former 'Merrie Monk' Public House, was carried out in June 2010. No archaeological features or remains were observed during the watching brief. The Monitoring ascertained that the Site had been subject to landscaping and foundation impacts, which had reduced ground levels into the underlying chalk. It is concluded that these impacts appeared to have removed any archaeological potential the Site may once have had.

Wheel Wreck Investigation 2018

Kevin Camidge
The waters around the Isles of Scilly contain a formidable number of historic shipwrecks, including five protected wreck sites. One of the most intriguing and enigmatic of these is the Wheel Wreck, a collection of corroded iron machinery lying in an orderly pile on the seabed in 16m of water. In April 2018, CISMAS carried out a six-day survey of the site. The cargo mound was measured, surveyed and enumerated. This has allowed the production...

18-19 Hanover Square, Bond Street Station (Eastern Ticket Hall) (Crossrail XSG10)

A series of nine geotechnical test pits were subject to a targeted watching brief undertaken by Oxford Archaeology/Gifford (OAG), in the basements of 18 and 19 Hanover Square. This work was part of the works for the Bond Street Station Eastern Ticket Hall (ETH), centred around Hanover Square, City of Westminster, London. The works took place in July 2010 and, due to the restricted nature of the watching brief works and the extent of 20th-...

Tanners Brook School, Southampton. Archaeological Watching Brief (SOU1705)

The Archaeology Unit of Southampton City Council carried out a watching brief in February and March 2016 on groundworks for the construction of a new classroom at Tanners Brook School. The work was commissioned by Southampton City Council. The natural river terrace gravels were overlaid by brickearth, but the brickearth had been removed over much of the site. Late 19th century maps show brickfields to the east of the site and it is likely it...

Land at Bidwell West (Houghton Regis North 2), Central Bedfordshire: Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-317895)

The earliest evidence for human activity was located on the crest of the chalk scarp in the southern part of the site and dates to the Early Neolithic. This comprised a small pit containing pottery, flint flakes, burnt hazelnut shells and charcoal. At the foot of the scarp there was a more substantial feature cut by a small ditch that provided artefactual evidence for Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age activity. Confirming geophysical survey results, the...

Lennon (Old Galactic Hub Capital)

Andrew Reinhard
The planet of Lennon was founded as the capital of the Galactic Hub in 2017 by Hub leader Syn1334 after a vote taken by early Hub citizens. Once a Paradise-class planet, the Atlas Rises cataclysm reset the planet's topography a climate to a rugged wintry waste, renaming it Drogradur NO-425. The capital is noteworthy not because of any settlements left behind, but rather for the massive inscriptional evidence left in the form of communication stations...

Blomfield Street Phase 2 Mitigation, 11-12 Blomfield Street (Crossrail XTB12)

The archaeological work on site consisted of three separate interventions: an excavation in the area of the grout box, a targeted watching brief on the area of the Main box, and a general watching brief during ground reduction of the rest of the site. The excavation of the grout shaft area was done in two phases in order to get a full east-west section across the shaft. The intention of this excavation was to explore...

Blomfield Worksite, Liverpool Street, 11-12 Blomfield Street, EC2 (Crossrail XSL10)

Three trenches were excavated in the basement of the now-demolished 11 and 12 Blomfield Street and rearward extensions. Natural gravels were exposed in two trenches. In the E of the site, natural deposits were cut by a series of sterile waterlain clays sloping from W-E, probably from a relatively fast flowing section of the Roman Walbrook (or a tributary of it) whose ancient alignment is echoed in the current N-S orientation of Blomfield Street. A...

Connaught Tunnel (Crossrail XSY11)

This archive presents the results of a field evaluation carried out by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) on the site of Connaught Tunnel, London E16, in the London Borough of Newham.
