Abstract

In October 2008 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Mardol Quay Gardens, Shrewsbury, Shropshire during the excavation of geotechnical test pits. The work was commissioned by Pearce & Lal in advance of proposed redevelopment for a public art project to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Charles Darwin. The watching brief revealed 19th century structures and deposits probably associated with the areas use as a quay. On February 26th 2009, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Mardol Quay Gardens, Shrewsbury, Shropshire (NGR: SJ 489 127). The work was commissioned by Pearce and Lal in advance of the construction of a sculpture commemorating the bi-centennial of Darwin’s birth. The watching brief revealed evidence of modern landscaping overlying 19th-century deposits including a brick path. No deposits, features or artefacts relating to the medieval wharf or bridge were observed.
