Abstract

Oxford Archaeology East has been commissioned by The Churches Conservation Trust to under-take a desk-based assessment for a plot of land including St. Peter's Church, the churchyard and The Old Black Lion public house, between St.Peter's Street and Mare Fair, Northampton (SP 74944 60385). The proposed redevelopment includes a visitor centre and conference and meeting facilities. The aim of this assessment is to determine the archaeological potential of the development site and the possible impact any future work could have on any archaeological remains. The site lies within the area of a designated scheduled monument (Northamptonshire 201), due to the nationally important Saxon and medieval remains which are known to survive in this area. There are also a wealth of documentary and cartographic sources pertaining to the area, along with numerous archaeological investigations carried out in the vicinity. Taken in conjunction, these sources indicate that there is a very high probability of archaeological remains surviving within the bounds of the site, particularly those dating to the Saxon to post-medieval periods.
