Abstract

The OAU was commissioned by the College of Arms to undertake an archaeological watching brief prior to backfilling of a site for a proposed library building to the east of the present College of Arms. This included the monitoring of two test pits and the cleaning and recording around an undated piece of wall within the 35 m by 4 m site. A suitable backfilling strategy would then be discussed. This report describes the result of the watching brief and assess the significance of the exposed archaeology. On the 27th September 200 OAU carried out a watching brief at the College of Arms, Queen Victoria Street, London for Donald Install Associates acting on behalf of The College f Arms. A small trench was hand excavated for the footings of two fence/gate posts. No archaeological deposits or remains were present within the trench. The deposits revealed were related to the present pavement construction and modern disturbances. The lowest layer revealed had the characteristics of a modern demolition layer, but may be the in-fill of a service or feature whose limits are outside the confines of the investigated area. These layers were recorded and tied into Ordnance Datum in order to maintain a record of modern impact levels and thereby aid future investigations in the area.
