Abstract:
Two test pits were excavated within the courtyard to the SW of Lamb's house (a mid 17th century structure) on the site of intended geotechnical investigations prior to development. Two slight linear gullies ,dating to the medieval period on the basis of pottery, were discovered in one of the test pits. Notably these did not follow the alignment of the medieval burgage plots. The area excavated was too small to interpret these features with any confidence. In the other test pit a wall of early 19th century date was discovered, which corresponds closely in position with one shown on the 1849-53 OS town plan. The results of these investigations suggest that any medieval remains in the courtyard of Lamb's house are likely to be severely truncated with only sub-surface features surviving.
