Eval phase 1 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation on land adjacent to Browse Antiques on Lichfield Road, Stafford for CgMs on behalf of McCarthy and Stone (Developments)Ltd. No clear significant archaeological deposits or remains were revealed by the evaluation. Three pits were revealed, two of which were securely dated to the C18th or later by the presence of porcelain. The undated feature was not securely stratigraphically placed but may represent earlier activity on the site. In addition a modern brick foundation and possible boundary ditch/construction cut, were recorded within the trench.

Excavation phase 2. Oxford Archaeology carried out an excavation on land between Lichfield Road and Wolverhampton Road in Stafford. The majority of the site was found to have been subject to considerable truncation during the post-medieval period. The north-west part of the site contained a scatter of truncated rubbish pits and an associated wall, all dating to the post-medieval period and sealed by a layer of made ground. In the sout-east part of the site there had been less truncation and a ditch of late medieval date was revealed running north-west to south-east direction. This ditch probably represents the remains of a plot boundary
