The excavations reached a maximum depth of 0.6m below current
ground level before identifying archaeological deposits. Although
there is the potential for the presence of burials (e.g. earth cut
graves, brick lined tombs), no evidence was found. Archaeological
activity comprised two floor surfaces of unknown date, most likely
associated with earlier phases of the church.
Based on the evaluation results, the foundation of the glass
screens can be accommodated under the current floor surface
without impacting either the earlier surfaces or disturbing
articulated human remains. The archaeology found underneath
the flagstone floor can therefore be preserved in-situ.
