Abstract:
Cuthbert's Yard lies to the west of Burton Road, close to Lincoln's historic core. The 'yard' itself was originally part of a farm, but is currently used as the site for rented 'lock-up' garages, multiple-use workshops, a motor repair garage, and a car sales business. The present owner is in consultation with City of Lincoln Council regarding possible redevelopment on the site involving the demolition of the existing buildings, and the construction of a multi-storey apartment block and single detached house. The site lies within an area of known archaeological importance immediately to the west of the defences of the Roman upper city, and is thought to probably overlie the western side of the defensive ditch. On the site itself, surviving buildings associated with the farm constructed in the mid-late 1800s, are considered to be of particular local historic interest. In view of this potential, two trial trenches - each measuring nominally 5m x 1m - were excavated to investigate any surviving archaeological deposits. Both trenches revealed part of a large ditch cut - possibly the edge of the Roman ditch - along with other later deposits and features, the latest of which were visible in section at a depth of c. 400mm below the existing ground level. Artefacts recovered from both stratified and unstratified contexts generally suggested a post-17th century date for the majority of this activity, although pieces of 12th to 13th/15th century roofing tile and a few fragments of Roman pottery or tile were also retrieved.
