Type and Period (5)
November 2003: Monitoring was carried out during the excavation of footing trenches for an extension at 40 College Street. At least 13 pits were identified. Dating evidence was sparse but the majority appear to have been medieval, beginning in the C13. A chalk surface may be evidence for a medieval building behind the College Street frontage. This was covered by a soil layer which may indicate a hiatus in activity during the late middle ages, but the evidence was not conclusive and a tile and mortar-lined well from this period was backfilled with domestic rubbish during the 16-17th centuries (S1).
