Abstract

Between the 10th and 13th January 2011, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Hampton Court Palace, Surrey (NGR TQ 155 686). The work was commissioned by Historic Royal Palaces in advance of the installation of the new car park exit. The watching brief of the test pit outside the Palace revealed modern backfill deposits related to the services running down Hampton Court Road overlain by the current footpath surfaces. Garden soils and old path surfaces were identified in the test pits excavated inside the palace alongside the Kitchen garden wall, Vrow Walk. Where the test pits abutted the palace garden walls, possible construction cut fill deposits were identified. No archaeological structures or features associated with the Tiltyard or subsequent Kitchen Gardens were identified within the excavated slots.
