Abstract

An archaeological field evaluation was carried out at 11-16 Biggin St, Dover. Two evaluation trenches (to a maximum 1.5m depth) and observations in cellared areas showed a well-preserved sequence of medieval deposits - cobbled and chalk surfaces, loams - dating from at least the 13th century and possibly earlier. These were overlain by later garden loams and then by brick rubble. The medieval archaeology is consistent with the picture obtained from historic maps of ribbon development along Biggins St with gardens or yards lying behind the buildings to the north. Very small quantities of residual Roman and early medieval pottery were also recovered. The complex, underlying palaeoenvironmental sequence was not fully evaluated, but is known to be up to 7 m deep in some areas.
