Abstract:
The excavations at Castle Ditch Lane, Lewes, included the historic building assessment of a former store building and the archaeological evaluation and excavation of two adjacent plots. The site is located on the northern side of the lane, on the site of the castle ditch and bank, or rampart. Finds from the latest ditch deposits, of 15th- to 16th-century date, suggest the ditch was deliberately backfilled to the level of the lane by that period. Other features revealed include a series of inter-cutting pits which contained a range of domestic artefacts and, in one pit, the complete skeleton of a human infant. Pottery from the pits ranged in date from the 12th to the 16th century and, although not a large assemblage, is a useful addition to the ceramic sequence of the town.
