Excavation of the Medieval Waterfront at King Stable (Paperback)
Oxford Archaeology carried out an excavation in 1997 on a site alongside the north bank of the river Thames in King Stable Street, Eton, Berkshire. The evidence indicated that the site probably served as a working area for properties fronting the approach to the north side of Windsor Bridge from the 12th century onwards. Evidence was also found of a succession of timber revetments constructed to consolidate the riverbank. Late medieval and post-medieval activity on the site was characterised by low intensity craft or industrial pursuits, prior to development of the site in the 18th century and construction of a malthouse.
