Archaeological Work at No. 9 Pipe Lane and No. 42 Frogmore Street, Bristol, 2011–2012
Author: Cai Mason
A programme of archaeological work was undertaken by Bristol and Region Archaeological Services (BaRAS) prior to, and during, the construction of a new student residential accommodation-building at No. 9 Pipe Lane and No. 42 Frogmore Street, Bristol (NGR ST 5846 7299). The archaeological work revealed evidence of early 16th-century quarrying and the remains of a large early 17th-century building, which was later used as an eye hospital. Several 18th- and 19th-century extensions to the building, and the remains of a second early 18th-century building, were also recorded.

An archaeological strip and map, targeted excavation and watching brief as well as a geoarchaeological evaluation were carried out prior to the construction of a new building at 66 Queen Square and 22, 23 and 23a King Street. The different phases of fieldwork exposed activity, buildings and associated features, possibly dating from the 17th century, through 1831 post-riots reconstruction, to later 19th and 20th century development.
