Published by Wessex Archaeology
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Stanhope PLC to carry out an archaeological evaluation at Stamford House, 1 Stamford Street SE1 in the London Borough of Southwark (NGR 531610,180450. The site comprised an approximately rectangular shaped 0.3ha area of land to the south of the southern end of Blackfriars Bridge, London. The requirement for the archaeological evaluation stems from the site’s location within an Archaeological Priority Zone, as defined within the London Borough of Southwark Unitary Development Plan, and the results of previous archaeological interventions within the site’s vicinity. The evaluation consisted of four evenly distributed and differently sized, machine excavated trenches across the development area. Under guidance from Sarah Gibson (Southwark Borough Council) Trench 2 was not archaeologically excavated but was observed during subsequent demolition ground reduction.
