Abstract:
In the spring of 2005, the Norfolk Archaeological Unit was commissioned by Ashgate Homes Ltd to evaluate a plot of land at 17-27 Fishergate, Norwich in advance of proposed redevelopment. The evaluation comprised three trenches, each 3m by 3m in plan, located to examine an area of c.500 sq. m. Significant archaeological remains were recorded in each of the evaluation trenches. The earliest occupation appears to date from the Late Saxon (10th to 11th-century) or Anglo-Norman (12th-century) periods, substantiated by post-holes, chalk surfaces and a beam-slot in Trench 3. During the 12th to 16th-centuries, surfaces and presumably associated buildings occupied the Fishergate street frontage, while in the space behind these buildings at the north of the site, perhaps within a yard, llarge pits of industrial/craft purpose were in use during the late medieval period (15th to early 16th-century). In the post-medieval period this space appears to have remained open, perhaps as a garden, whilst along the Fishergate frontage properties of 16th or 17th-century date fronted the street. These buildings survived, with some modification, until the plot was developed in the second half of the 20th century. The preservation of these archaeological remains can be qualified as good, with limited evidence of modern disturbance, truncation or contamination. Of particular note was the apparent absence of cellars along the street frontage with the potential for significant remains in this area to survive. The waterlogged anaerobic condition of the lowest archaeological remains preserved organic finds, indicated by the recovery of leather objects and ecofacts recorded by the environmental sampling. Small assemblages of late prehistoric worked flints and Early Saxon pottery and a single fragment of Roman tile were present as residual finds in later contexts.
