Abstract

In October and November 2003 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief during the excavation of 124 geotechnical test pits at Silvertown Quays, Newham, London (NGR: TQ 4120 8025). The work was commissioned by Soil Mechanics in advance of the redevelopment of the site for residential and recreational use. Although remains of human settlement were not identified the watching brief exposed undisturbed peat and alluvial deposits consistent with the remains of buried natural landscapes possibly dating to the prehistoric period and later. The watching brief also revealed extensive areas of recent made ground with little archaeological potential.
