Abstract

The Arts Development Officer for Lancaster City Council requested that Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) submit proposals to undertake a programme of archaeological evaluation at the Grade II listed Storey Institute (IoE numbers: 383092, 383214) (SD 4742 6174), Meeting House Lane, Lancaster (Fig 1), prior to its proposed refurbishment. This was in response to recommendations made by the Specialist Advisor (Archaeology) and the Assistant Conservation Officer during a meeting on March 16th 2005. This programme of evaluation included a building investigation and several test pits excavated in the basement and in targeted areas surrounding the building. These elements were completed in June 2006 and November 2007.
The building investigation recorded the Storey Institute to an English Heritage Level I standard, and therefore no interpretation or analysis was required. In addition, the test pits, which were excavated within the basement and the courtyard, revealed no significant remains aside from the construction horizon of the building.
