On Site Archaeology
Fieldwork took place 2013-2014 during resurfacing works. Post excavation and report preparation Oct 22-March 23. The watching brief comprised the monitoring of removal of the existing surfaces across the square and parts of the adjacent carriageways. The watching brief demonstrated the survival of elements of the church of Holy Trinity (Christ Church), Kings Square, which originated in at least the 13th century, but had been substantially rebuilt in the 19th century. A substantial quantity of disarticulated human bone was recovered from demolition and make-up deposits and from service trenches. These human remains were carefully reburied within the vaults under the supervision of the church authorities prior to resurfacing of the square.
