Abstract

Between 20th and 22nd of August 2014 Oxford Archaeology conducted an archaeological evaluation at Riley's Snooker Hall, Pound Avenue, Stevenage, Hertfordshire (TL 2355 2486) in advance of the demolition of existing buildings.and construction of apartments for sheltered accommodation.
Five trenches, totaling 82m, were excavated. The stratigraphically earliest feature was an undated boundary ditch located beneath a series of channels and associated flood deposits of post medieval to modern date. A narrow ditch and pit, located towards the east corner of the site, were also post medieval in date.
Trenching along the south-west edge and north-west frontage of the site exposed a sequence of layers. These included the former topsoil and subsoils, the latter of which contained Roman and medieval pottery, suggestive of low level agricultural activity in the vicinity.
