|Name:||Site with no archaeological finds or features at Norwich School playing field, Bishopgate|
No archaeological finds or features were recorded during an evaluation and monitoring of groundworks for the construction of a new flood wall in 2007. The ground in this area appears to have been significantly made-up in the post medieval period, and no potential medieval layers were exposed.

February 2007. Evaluation, contexts 1-22 used.
The only archaeologically significant remains to be encountered during this work was a layer of chalk present in the northernmost trench. This probably formed the footings of a post-medieval structure which probably dates to the early part of the 20th century.
The deposit sequences are broadly what would be expected for an area of reclaimed floodplain such as this. Peat deposits revealed in auger holes in both trenches are similar to those identified at NHER 26589, where radiocarbon dating indicated that peat formation ceased in the Middle-Late Saxon period.
