Abstract:
The results of archaeological monitoring of groundworks associated with drainage improvement works and a cable trench serving St. James' Hospital Chapel, Horning, Norfolk. The chapel building appears to have been well sited on a relatively high occurrence of sandy-clay amongst an area of alluvial clay-silts. A layer of clean redeposited sandy-clay above organic stained deposits may be a consolidation horizon associated with medieval construction. The surface of two stone packed linear features of medieval date were revealed on the south side of the chapel, these are tentatively interpreted as pads or footings for a structure. A medieval ditch was discovered which runs below the north-west corner of the chapel. This may indicate some form of reorganisation of land use, possibly coinciding with a rebuilding programme at the hospital site following fire damage to an earlier building in the 1340s. Partial exposure of several buttress pads and part of the chapel wall footings allowed for limited examination of the fabric and form of their construction. A small area of the southern chapel wall footings was exposed, which appear to show a fairly shallow footing constructed upon a foundation trench containing mortar debris. The remnants of two lean-to agricultural buildings of 19th century date were identified on the north side of the chapel from their footings. A small number of prehistoric flints were collected as residual finds which indicate Late Neolithic to Bronze Age activity in the vicinity of the chapel site.
