Wilson Bowden Developments (WBD) Ltd propose to undertake a major development of the 4.53 hectare site at Eagles Meadow, south-east of Wrexham city centre, NGR SJ 33810 50410. Due to the proximity of the site to the medieval core of the city, Wrexham Borough Council requested that a programme of archaeological investigation be undertaken to inform the planning process. A desk-based assessment undertaken by John Samuels Archaeological Consultants (JSAC) identified moderate potential for archaeological remains within the development area and, accordingly, Wrexham Archaeological Service (WAS, part of Wrexham Borough Council) issued a
brief for an archaeological evaluation. JSAC compiled a specification to meet the WAS brief and commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North), on behalf of WBD, to undertake the evaluation.
The evaluation was undertaken in September 2005 and comprised the investigation, to a maximum depth of 2m, of five trial trenches positioned and excavated in accordance
with the JSAC specification. Four trenches were located along the western edge of the development area, closest to the medieval city centre. The fifth trench was placed
towards the centre of the site.
