An Excavation at the King and Queen, Caterham


This paper describes medieval features found during the excavation of a medieval, 18th and 19th century site in the back garden of the King and Queen public house, Caterham, Surrey. The medieval features included two phases of building; the earlier, c AD 1200-1300, consisted of the flint-built dwarf walls of a corner of a timber-framed building (Period I), the later, c 1300-1400, was represented by a section of a flint and chalk lump sill-wall with associated stake-holes (Period II). The period II wall overlay the earlier structure, and had disturbed it. There was nothing to suggest occupation after c 1400 until the 18th century, when a terrace of cottages was built; the occupants of these disposed of their kitchen refuse in pits dug into their back gardens. The pits were in use throughout the 19th century, during which the most southerly cottage was converted into an ale-house; broken bottles and glasses and other rubbish was disposed of in a large pit in its back garden.
