From the 18th to the 27th of March 2013, Oxford Archaeology carried out a trial trench evaluation on the site of The Former NXP Works in Southampton, Hampshire, on behalf of CgMs Consulting prior to the redevelopment of the site by Canmoor Projects Ltd. Of a proposed 30 trenches, 21 were excavated, and these revealed a single undated ditch which was located towards the eastern edge of site. The ditch was cut through the tidal flat deposits which were present within the majority of trenches across the site, and which had been subject to varying levels of truncation. The ditch is likely to correspond with a boundary shown on the historic maps of the area. The remainder of the trenches were devoid of archaeological features. Six geo-technical test pits situated around the periphery of the proposed building were also monitored and recorded
