Full Description

An archaeological evaluation in advance of development was carried out at Osmond House within the medieval core of Botesdale. The site was generally disturbed by the ploughing in of chalk rubble which was dumped on the site in the late 19th or early part of the 20th century. Two pits were found one dated to the 18th century but in the second pottery wasters and debris from a kiln producing late medieval and transitional wares were recovered, suggesting a production site within the vicinity (S1).
