Chesterfield Inn Watching Brief

The project was conducted in August 2014 and consisted of an archaeological watching brief of trench excavations at the Chesterfield Inn in the City of Rockingham.  The project was requested by the Heritage Council of Western Australia in response to proposed construction for pipe works within the registered curtilage of the Inn. Archaeological material including ceramics, bottle glass, metal, animal bone and a single mirror shard were retrieved from the trenches.  An occupational debris pit containing archaeological material was recorded and preserved in-situ at the Inn.
