Evaluation in Egham

L – P : Archaeology in Egham, Surrey, UK. All images copyright 2012 L – P: Archaeology.

This week L – P : Archaeology have been excavating a series of evaluation trenches in Egham, Surrey for Liberty Properties in advance of the construction of a new Waitrose supermarket (Plug!) We have mostly been hoping to find medieval material, but there is also some potential for prehistoric and Roman stuff here.

So far all we have found has been of 19th or early-to-mid 20th C date. We will be opening another trench today, so with luck there will be something more to add later. Meanwhile here are some pictures from earlier in the week:
