An archaeological evaluation was undertaken at County Hotel Garage, County Street,
Lancaster (SD 471617) by Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) on behalf of
Norman Jackson Contractors Ltd, and in accordance with a verbal brief by the Lancashire
County Archaeological Service. This followed an assessment of documentary and
cartographic sources which had previously been undertaken in September 1997 (LUAU
1997). The site lies to the south-west of Lancaster Castle, a medieval foundation sited over
the remains of a series of Roman forts on Castle Hill, to the west of the medieval town. A
short distance to the west of the site, in the Westfield Memorial Village, remains of Roman
burials were discovered in the 1930s.
The evaluation involved the excavation of one trench, measuring 24m by 1.7m, which was
mechanically dug, under archaeological supervision, prior to being cleaned and inspected by
experienced archaeologists. No artefacts or features of archaeological significance were
recovered during the evaluation.
