Abstract

Between the 30th of August and the 3rd of September 2007, Oxford
Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief during
the excavation of ten geotechnical trial pits on the proposed site of the
Greenwich Waterfront Transit (GWT) Phase 1 route, from Barnham Drive
to north of Western Way (NGR: TQ 4537 8048). The work was
commissioned by Parsons Brinckerhoff Ltd. in advance of proposed
construction of a new road in Thamesmead West. Although no definite
archaeological remains were identified, 4 of the trial pits exposed
undisturbed peat and some alluvial deposits consistent with the remains of
buried landscapes possibly dating to the prehistoric period and later. All
the trial pits revealed extensive deposits of modern made ground overlying
a capping layer of clay sealing the peat.
