Abstract

In March and July 2009 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at the Daniel Department Store, Peascod Street, Windsor, Berkshire (NGR: SU 9662 7677). The work was commissioned by W J Daniel and Company Ltd in advance of the redevelopment of an existing store. The watching brief revealed evidence of extensive truncation of the eastern side of the site due to modern intrusions, together with earlier basementing at the front of the site. Remains of the structures recorded on the 19th-century OS maps were also observed together with an associated brick-capped well. No evidence for structures predating the 19th century was observed. Between March and May 2011, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief during the Phase 2 development of the Daniel Department Store, Peascod Street, Windsor, Berkshire (NGR: SU 9677 7677). The work was commissioned by W J Daniel and Company Ltd in advance of the redevelopment of an existing store. The watching brief revealed evidence of extensive truncation of the southern third of the site by modern intrusions, together with post-medieval cellarage along the Peascod Street front of the site. Remains of the structures recorded on the 19th and 20th century OS maps were also observed together with two associated brick-lined wells. Evidence for probable late medieval or early post-medieval occupation of the site was observed in the form of demolition debris and residual finds. No evidence for any deposits, features or structures predating the 15th century was observed
