A - Z Projects

Orion Heritage undertook an archaeological desk based assessment of the Riviera Hotel on the banks of the River Thames. The assessment established that the study site had low potential for archaeological remains, but the presence of prehistoric remains could not be entirely ruled out. It also concluded that the construction of the existing hotel would have at least partially destroyed any archaeological remains that may have been located within the footprint of the existing buildings. The assessment concluded that further archaeological investigation in relation to the proposed development was considered to be unnecessary due to the very limited opportunity for results of archaeological value.
