hoarding all

Godden Mackay Logan Pty Ltd (GML) was engaged by Mirvac to undertake an archaeological investigation as part of the redevelopment of the site, incorporating 200 George Street, 190 George Street and 4 Dalley Street.

Excavation in the northern part of the 190 George Street basement uncovered a natural sandstone shelf bedrock below the basement floor. Many features had been cut into the bedrock, including a large well 2.5 m deep and 1.6 m wide brimming with interesting artefacts. Amongst the finds were leather shoes and off-cuts, buttons, pins, scissors, candle snuffers, coins, clay pipes and a brooch.
