Between the 18th and 20th of May and the 19th and 22nd of July 2021, Oxford Archaeology East undertook a watching brief on a series of boreholes, trial pits and trial trenches in the grounds of the Stamford and Rutland Hospital, Lincolnshire.
The hospital itself stands on the site of the Franciscan friary known as Grey Friars, which was founded prior to AD 1230. During the monitoring of the trial holes, pottery sherds, human and animal bone and ceramic building material, were recovered. During the machine excavation of the two trial trenches, a large post‐medieval quarry pit was identified, which contained large fragments of dressed building stone along with the remnants of an in situ wall, also made from dressed stone.
