Abstract

This site lies within Salford’s historic core and had been examined by OA North between 2005 and 2007, initially through the excavation of targeted evaluation trenches across four individual areas. This work was also supplemented by an archaeological watching brief, which monitored earth-moving works across parts of the site. During the evaluation, one area (Area A) was found to contain significant archaeological remains and, accordingly, it was subjected to more extensive and detailed excavation. This entailed removing the modern overburden across the
complete southern corner of the site and manually excavating and recording the below-ground remains. The remains in this area included: a medieval ditch, pits, and occupation deposits; early post-medieval garden soils and pits; and later eighteenth and nineteenth-century brick-built buildings. The site also produced a regionally significant assemblage of medieval and post-medieval pottery.
