Following a request by Andrew Scott of the Jesmond Group, Oxford Archaeology North
(formerly Lancaster University Archaeological Unit) undertook a desk-based assessment,
during August 2002, of the Half Moon Lane frontage and adjacent backlands of the Bottle
Bank site, in advance of a proposed residential development (NZ 2535 6355).
The assessment comprised a desk-based survey of available documentary and cartographic
sources in conjunction with excavation evidence from within the development area. A map
regression was undertaken to reconstruct the development of the area using maps that date
back to 1610. This demonstrated the importance of Bottle Bank / High Street and the
development and infilling of the burgage plots behind the frontage.
