Significance of the results: neg
Monitoring work was carried out on the site during the removal of the foundation pads and parking surface of the temporary Taylor Wimpey project offices, marketing suite and associated parking.
Due to the site’s position within the area of the scheduled Roman circus, no excavation was permitted below 300mm. No archaeological features were observed. This is probably due to the site having been substantially disturbed during the demolition of the Civil Service Club in 2004, and subsequent consolidation with imported crush material.
