In October 2010, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief during geotechnical test pitting at The Market Place, Salisbury, Wiltshire (centred at NGR: SU 144 300). The work was commissioned by Martin Stockley Associates on behalf of Salisbury Vision in advance of proposed refurbishment of the area. The watching brief revealed extensive deposits of made ground, probably of a post-medieval date and a post-medieval east-west running drystone wall. These were overlain by a combination of tarmac and paved surfaces dating between the 19th and 20th centuries. No other significant archaeology was observed.
