BRIGHTON.- Archaeology South-East have helped uncover a 200-year-old burial site found during recent redevelopment work at Brighton Dome Corn Exchange.

The human remains, which have now been exhumed and will be analysed to determine more about the deceased, are thought to be from a Quaker burial ground that existed before the Royal Pavilion Estate was built.

As Darryl Palmer (ASE) indicated: "The Quaker meeting house and cemetery at the Dome is recorded on the Bishop's map of 1803 and absent by the OS town plan of 1876. The best clue as to when worship and burial ceased is when the Quaker meeting house moved to the current location on Meeting House Lane in 1805. This is a significant find that shines a light on an important historical moment in the city."

The work at the historic Corn Exchange is part of an ambitious project to restore and reunite the Royal Pavilion Estate buildings and gardens. The refurbishment project - which will restore long-lost heritage features as well as provide new, state-of the art facilities - began in March this year and is expected to be completed by late 2018.

Archaeology South-East (ASE) provide a comprehensive range of research services in archaeology and heritage management to help construction industry clients and local communities make sense of the historic environment.
