This licence was reactivated to allow additional monitoring of the removal of overburden from the site prior to the resolution. This was carried out in January 2003. It involved the removal by machine of a small section of concrete slab in the street front area, and the stripping of soil from an additional 340m2 in the rear garden area. Archaeological material uncovered was subsequently resolved under the licence 03E0058 (No. 1218 below).
