Full description

July 1995. Trial Trenching.
Excavation of three trenches revealed dumped post-medieval building materials. At the northern end of the site deep post-medieval cellar excavation has removed earlier archaeological deposits. It is unlikely that positive evidence of medieval activity survives on this site.
See report (S1) for further details. The results of this work are also summarised in (S2).
The associated archive has been deposited with the Norwich Castle Museum (NWHCM : 2018.209).
