Published by Wessex Archaeology
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Environ UK Ltd to carry out an archaeological desk-based assessment on Kensington Palace Hotel, Kensington Road in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (hereafter referred to as the Site), centred on NGR 526050 179620. The assessment is required to accompany a planning application for alterations and additions to the existing building.
There are 19 archaeological sites and findspots within a 500m square Study Area dating from the prehistoric through to the modern period.
There is archaeological evidence from the early Mesolithic through to the Iron Age within the Study Area with a prehistoric site recorded at Vicarage House, Vicarage Gate to the north west of the Site. Other prehistoric finds have been recorded from the Study Area. Communication links, in the form of roads, were constructed probably from the Iron Age period with the line of Akeman Street running along the modern Kensington High Street which is presumed to join up with the Silchester to London Road during the Roman period.
