Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) were commissioned in June 2006 by Jacobs Babtie, on behalf of the Environment Agency, to undertake an archaeological watching brief at specified locations along the River Trent on the eastern side of Burton-upon-Trent (from NGR SK 2620 2590 (north) to SK 2480 2150 (south)), during groundworks undertaken for the purposes of a Flood Alleviation Scheme (FAS). Previous archaeological investigations, including a desk-based assessment (Jacobs Babtie 2004) and trial trenching (OA North 2006), had identified nine sites of archaeological potential that could be affected by the proposed scheme. These included, from north to south, Meadow Lane, Wetmore Hall Farm, Library Street, Memorial Gardens, Burton Abbey, Green Street, Burton Technical College, and Upper Mills Farm. However, groundwork at the Library Street and Green Street sites were cancelled or modified, thereby not requiring any archaeological mitigation; at Burton Abbey the archaeological mitigation took place under scheduled monument conditions and entailed both excavation and watching brief, the results of which will be reported separately (OA North forthcoming).
