Summary. An archaeological watching brief was carried out on two areas of cable trenching in Upper Castle Park: the putting green and Hollytrees Museum. Residual Roman pottery and tile were recorded but no features of archaeological significance were observed, and it is thought that the trenches were not dug deep enough to impact archaeological deposits. A length of cable trenching was also monitored outside the Natural History Museum opposite Castle Park, but this was only 200mm deep and only modern deposits were observed.
