The Project

Excavation in progress at Fenchurch StreetExcavation in progress at Fenchurch StreetWessex Archaeology are working for Frogmore Developments Ltd on the archaeological excavation at 60 & 63 Fenchurch Street in the City of London EC3. The site is being redeveloped to provide a prestigious new office building.
 
The excavation was completed in August 2002 and removed all archaeological remains on the site prior to erection of the new building.
 
Wessex Archaeology has been involved with the project from the outset. Desk-based studies and trial excavations have allowed us to understand the nature of the archaeological remains that were likely to survive on the site before planning permission was granted. As a result, the need to excavate and record the archaeological remains has been acknowledged and included in the development programme since the beginning of the project.
 
Wessex Archaeology has a 20-year track record of complex urban excavations and we hope that visitors to our website will enjoy following the progress of this excavation with us.
