Abstract:
An excavation was carried out in advance of residential development, at a site where an earlier evaluation had revealed part of the well-preserved foundations of a late medieval building, which were to be recorded and preserved beneath a geotextile material. A further area to the north of the evaluation which had previously been inaccessible was also investigated. The medieval building foundations were of flint and mortar construction, and had a total surviving length of 11.5m. No remains of a corner or return at the western end were found, which suggested that post-medieval cellaring or similar disturbance had destroyed this part of the building. Dating evidence suggested that the building had been in use in the 15th-16th century. The remains of a flint and mortar wall foundation with internal plinths were also revealed. Stratigraphic and dating evidence suggested an 18th-19th century date for this building. 17th-18th century levelling/make-up layers and several pits, ditches and post-holes were also identified, whilst a sherd of Roman pottery and two Saxon sherds were recovered. Further finds included oyster, tile, clay pipe, glass, brick and a late medieval thimble. [Au(adp)]
