INTRODUCTION
 
Birmingham
 
Archaeology
 
in
 
cooperation
 
with
 
Carillion
 
Building
 
and
 
Birmingham
 
City
 
Council
 
undertook
 
an
 
archaeological
 
excavation
 
ahead
 
of 
 
the
 
development
 
of 
 
the
 
new
 
Library
 
of 
 
Birmingham.
 
The
 
site
 
of 
 
the
 
Library
 
of 
 
Birmingham
 
is
 
located
 
on
 
Cambridge
 
Street
 
in
 
a
 
plot
 
of 
 
land
 
between
 
the
 
REP
 
theatres,
 
Baskerville
 
House
 
and
 
extending
 
into
 
Centenary
 
Square,
 
on
 
the
 
edge
 
and
 
to
 
the
 
north
west
 
of 
 
the
 
city
 
centre
 
of 
 
Birmingham
 
(NGR
 
SP
 
0631
 
8687).
 
Site
 
Plan
 
and 
 
Location
 
The
 
work
 
was
 
undertaken
 
between
 
June
 
and
 
December
 
2009,
 
in
 
two
 
stages
 
in
 
Area
 
1
 
at
 
the
 
north
 
of 
 
the
 
site
 
and
 
Area
 
2
 
a
 
later
 
extension
 
at
 
the
 
south
 
of 
 
the
 
site.
 
Earlier
 
desk
based
 
historical
 
work,
 
archaeological
 
trial
 
excavation
 
and
 
observation
 
of 
 
geotechnical
 
trenches
 
had
 
identified
 
the
 
potential
 
of 
 
the
 
site
 
for
 
archaeological
 
remains
 
of 
 
the
 
Cambridge
 
Street
 
Brass
 
Works
 
dating
 
to
 
the
 
19th
 
and
 
20th
 
centuries.
 
Mike
 
Hodder,
 
the
 
City
 
Archaeologist
 
recommended
 
an
 
archaeological
 
excavation
 
before
 
building
 
work
 
was
 
undertaken.
 
The
 
excavation
 
covered
 
an
 
area
 
of 
 
5ha
.
 
Within
 
the
 
site
 
there
 
remains
 
of 
 
19th
 
century
 
industrial
 
buildings
 
and
 
part
 
of 
 
the
 
abandoned
 
Birmingham
 
canal
 
network.
 
The
 
majority
 
of 
 
the
 
site
 
was
 
occupied
 
by
 
the
 
brass
 
working
 
manufactory;
 
the
 
Union
 
Rolling
 
Mills
 
(later
 
Winfield’s
 
Cambridge
 
Street
 
Works)
 
and
 
two
 
canals
 
(Gibson’s
 
Basin
 
or
 
Arm
 
and
 
Baskerville
 
Basin).
 
Various
 
elements
 
of 
 
the
 
brass
 
manufactory
 
were
 
identified
 
including

(boiler

etc)
 
and
 
parts
 
of 
 
the

(rolling
 
mill,
 
wire
 
drawing

The
 
fragmentary
 
remains
 
of 
 
the
 
Broad
 
Street
 
Metal
 
Works
 
and
 
Screw
 
Manufactory
 
were
 
also
 
identified.
