Abstract

Between September 2006 and June 2007, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at 42 Market Place, Devizes, Wiltshire (NGR: SU 0048 6152). The work was commissioned by Westray Investments Ltd in advance of the repair and conservation of the building and the construction of a new extension to the rear. The watching brief revealed the truncated foundations of the original back wall to the building, four brick-lined 18th/19th century wells, two of which appeared to be accessed from below ground passage ways, a post-medieval rubbish pit and a possible backfilled cellar. No archaeology earlier than the 17th century was encountered.
