Full Description

Monitoring was carried out during the excavation of footing trenches for an extension to the rear of 97 Risbygate Street. At least 18 pits were identified with a wide range of dates represented. The earliest pit group dates from the 13th-14th centuries, a single large posthole was the only contemporary structural evidence. The finds recovered did not provide enough evidence to indicate what activities may have taken place on the site beyond basic domestic consumption. There was also evidence of a cellar, possibly 18th century, which cut the medieval posthole (S1).
