Abstract

Following an initial programme of archaeological evaluation trenching that confirmed the presence of extensive and significant below-ground remains across the site of the former Coventry Evening Telegraph complex, full excavation of five areas was carried out by Salford Archaeology between January and March 2019.3 The excavation site lay in the northern part of Coventry city centre, comprising an area of 4,250 sq m bounded by Lamb Street, Bishop Street, Corporation Street and Chapel Street. Besides a single worked flint of late Mesolithic/early Neolithic date and a sherd of Roman pottery (both recovered from post-Conquest deposits), the archaeological record was dominated by remains deriving from seemingly continuous site activity between the late 11th and the 17th centuries. Three broad phases of activity were recognised across this timespan, plus two later phases representing occupation during the 18th and 19th centuries, and redevelopment in the 20th century.
