Abstract:
The study area is situated within the bounds of the medieval hamlet of Goswell End. A probable 'hollow way' (Long Lane) ran north-south across the field, with a possible second, leading off to the west, approximately halfway along the course of the north-south one, within the field. Evidence of possible ditches 'within' the bounds of both probable 'hollow ways' was observed. To the south of the study area, the field topsoil sealed an earlier topsoil containing a frequent, even distribution of c.12th-13th century pottery sherds. This assemblage may have accumulated as a result of direct dumping onto the buried topsoil. The deposit was seen for c.18.5m east-west and c.3m north-south. It was bounded to the east by a ditch and to the west by the probable north-south 'hollow way'. The northern limit appeared to be defined by rough cobble surfaces and an east-west ditch. The southern extent was not determined by the evaluation. This clearly defined 'allotment', with an apparent maintained soil, may have functioned as an enclosed orchard or cottage garden. Two linear features and a probable post-hole were observed to the north and east of the 'allotment'. These may represent a different phase of site use. The north-east quadrant of the study area was void of archaeological deposits. Evaluation results indicate that archaeological features and deposits relating to the 11th - 13th century are present to the south of the study area. This has significance with regard to the origin and form of the Hamlet of Goswell End
