Abstract:
Results of the archaeological monitoring of a rectangular plot of land measuring 87m2 fronting onto Deneside Road, to the rear of 59 King Street, Great Yarmouth. The plot was formerly occupied by two brick built garages and is currently under development for domestic housing. An indundation layer of 'beach sand' was identified at the base of six foundation pits at a depth of between 1.7 and 2.10m below the modern land surface. Borehole data in the area suggests that a further 2m of medieval deposits may be present below this beach sand, laying above the sand and shingle spit. The sand was sealed below extensive spreads of imported make-up dated from the 16th to 17th century which also included residual medieval artefacts including pottery sherds and glazed roof tile fragments. This activity may be associated with the documented levelling of the area around 1678. Cartographic evidence shows that by the mid 18th century the site occupied part of a fairly open land block bordered by modest housing or cottages. Remnants of a semi-sunken cellar with a simple cobbled floor may relate to these buildings. By the late 1800s the plot extended to the rear of 59 King Street, in the form of a gated yard with outbuildings. By 1900 OS plans depict two sheds or garages occupying the majority of the plot, divided by a central path. A subterranean 19th century brick well and cistern encountered during the groundworks may have provided water from this yard to surrounding properties.
