Published by Wessex Archaeology
Wessex Archaeology (London) was commissioned by Environ UK to undertake an Archaeological Desk-based Assessment on the site of Joseph Chamberlain College, Birmingham, centred on NGR 407700 284900. Standard Life Investments has proposed redevelopment of the site for a new retail complex.
This Desk-based Assessment has utilised publicly accessible and archive sources to investigate, as far as is reasonable and practicable, the nature and extent of any known or potential archaeological resource within the Site and a surrounding Study Area.
The synthesised results of the study are set-out below.
Very little was noted either from the SMR data or through the map regression exercise, with only Roman stray finds of coins and Post-medieval structural evidence in the environs of the Site.
