Abstract:
Between 22nd January and 12th February 2013 PRO Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief involving five separate site visits at 67 Manor Road, Lancing (NGR: TQ 1815 0557). The work was commissioned by Cranford Construction and Developments. The site was subject to an archaeological evaluation in 2008 which was undertaken by Chris Butler Archaeological Services. This revealed the first evidence for medieval settlement within Lancing. The results suggested that medieval settlement started in the 12th to mid 13th century, continuing through to the 14th century. The evaluation identified two main elements. An east-west orientated ditch which ran parallel to Manor Road, and interpreted as the rear boundary to house plots fronting onto Manor Road; and a number of rubbish pits. The Watching Brief identified four further pits, one of which was post-medieval as well as the ditch originally identified in the evaluation. Due to the drop in levels from Manor Road to the site it was not necessary to reduce the northern edge of the site as previously intended, but rather to make it up. Therefore the area deemed most archaeologically significant fronting onto Manor Road was not subject to investigation. The Watching Brief has revealed a further background scatter of features identified with back yard activity. These pits are likely to be associated with rubbish disposal, which supports the conclusions of the previous evaluation. It was not possible to establish whether the ditch [112] was a rear boundary to medieval properties fronting onto Manor Road due to the limited scope of the service trench which cut across it, and the fact that the surrounding area was not reduced as originally planned.
