Abstract

The excavations reached a maximum depth of 0.6m below current ground level before identifying archaeological deposits. Although there is the potential for the presence of burials (e.g. earth cut graves, brick lined tombs), no evidence was found. Archaeological activity comprised two floor surfaces of unknown date, most likely associated with earlier phases of the church. Based on the evaluation results, the foundation of the glass screens can be accommodated under the current floor surface without impacting either the earlier surfaces or disturbing articulated human remains. The archaeology found underneath the flagstone floor can therefore be preserved in-situ.
