Greenwich Waterfront Transit - Phase 1

Sims, Mike (2007) Greenwich Waterfront Transit - Phase 1. Project Report. Oxford Archaeological Unit Ltd. (Unpublished)




Between the 30th of August and the 3rd of September 2007, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief during the excavation of ten geotechnical trial pits on the proposed site of the Greenwich Waterfront Transit (GWT) Phase 1 route, from Barnham Drive to north of Western Way (NGR: TQ 4537 8048). The work was commissioned by Parsons Brinckerhoff Ltd. in advance of proposed construction of a new road in Thamesmead West. Although no definite archaeological remains were identified, 4 of the trial pits exposed undisturbed peat and some alluvial deposits consistent with the remains of buried landscapes possibly dating to the prehistoric period and later. All the trial pits revealed extensive deposits of modern made ground overlying a capping layer of clay sealing the peat.
