GGAT Contracts undertook a watching brief during topsoil stripping and partial excavation of the subsoil, subsequent drainage and other groundworks, in advance of a development at Plot 4a, Cabot Park, Poplar Way East, Bristol. The only archaeologically significant deposits encountered were of a post-medieval or modern date, furthermore all the observed material culture was of a post-medieval or medieval date. The line of a historic rhine was also noted. No features or artefacts
associated with the known prehistoric site of Little Googs were noted, although the horizons potentially associated with prehistoric and Roman settlement were noted during the deeper groundworks.

Summary
GGAT Contracts undertook a watching brief, in accordance with the archaeologicalwritten scheme of investigation (Dunning 2006), during topsoil stripping and partialexcavation of the subsoil, subsequent drainage and other groundworks, in advance of a development at Plot 4a, Cabot Park, Poplar Way East, Bristol. The onlyarchaeologically significant deposits encountered were of a post-medieval or moderndate, furthermore all the observed material culture was of a post-medieval or medieval date.
