Bargate Centre, Southampton

March 2020 | Bargate Property Ltd

PJO Archaeology is acting as archaeological consultant for the redevelopment of the Bargate Centre in Southampton. This is a shopping centre constructed in 1990 which is now redundant. The site is archaeologically significant as it lies in, and immediately outside, the north-east corner of the medieval walled town at Southampton. Excavations in the 1980s revealed remains of prehistoric, Roman, Anglo-Saxon and medieval date. We are advising the client on the scope of archaeological investigations which may be required under the terms of the National Planning Policy Framework and Southampton City Council's policy on archaeology and planning. We are also managing Scheduled Monument Consent applications for refurbishment of the town wall. Important recent discoveries include a large area of the Late Anglo-Saxon town east of the medieval walls. Archaeology will continue in 2020.
