Abstract:
Norvic Archaeology was commissioned by Jason Fuller to undertake archaeological monitoring on groundworks associated with the construction of a bungalow on a plot of land adjacent to 'High Trees', which is located on a lane off The Street, Mileham. The plot was formerly part of the garden of 'Red Roofs' before being purchased by the owners of 'High Trees'. It now forms a private plot c. 850m2 designated for this residential development. The site is located within the area of the medieval settlement of Mileham and specifically in the area between the castle and St John's Church. Medieval pottery fragments were discovered in the immediate vicinity of the plot during building works in the 1980s. No significant evidence of medieval activity was revealed by the groundworks, although a small number of pits of uncertain date were recorded. This area of land appears to have been a marginal plot subject to historic pitting, possibly for the ad-hoc extraction of clay A large post-medieval pit which measured c. 5.85m across was encountered at the southern edge of the site, which may have served as a clay extraction pit before receiving dumps of ashy-waste and soil. Following the early 20th century establishment of the Red Roofs small holding this particular area of land was subject to rubbish pitting. Several rubbish pits of a late 1940s to 1950s date were encountered along the northern edge of the site and several other pits of later 20th century date were identified elsewhere.
