Sample text

A sequence typical of the upper Walbrook sites was excavated to the south and east at Angel Court in 1974 (Site 34) (Blurton 1977). The earliest phase apparently consisted of a north-east to south-west aligned streamlet which overflowed in the late lst-early 2nd century (ibid fig 2, 20-21). 9m thick. 7m OD, dated to the early-mid 2nd century. This was cut by a north-west to south-east orientated ditch which must have converged on the canalised streamlet. The layer which is interpreted as an overflow deposit of the streamlet (20c), however, is actually contained within the revetted stream and therefore post-dates it.

In the eastern trench a clay surface was laid directly onto the artificially raised ground, at the same level as the first gravel surface to the west (Figs 62; 99; 100). 7m OD (Figs 99; 100). On the west side of the site a north-east to south-west road was identified. Only its east side was revealed, consisting of a make-up layer and four-five bands of grey, blue and brown gravel or gravel in a matrix of clay (Fig 66). 95m OD. 4m deep bordered the road (Figs 62; 66). Below the eastern edge of the road lay a peaty deposit which probably represented the early dumping that was carried out on the site (above).

On the latter site (Site 30) Norman and Reader recognized the west side of a streambed, composed of washed gravel and sand which became deeper towards the east, overlying London Clay. It was not made clear however through what the stream cut. 0m OD. 9m) of ‘undisturbed loam’ which shelved gradually eastwards where it gave way to stream deposits. 1m) towards the east end of the site. Because there is no indication of the location of the heights taken on London Clay, it seems reasonable to suggest that the greater depth was recorded at the east end of the site where the streambed was situated.
