2011: An evaluation trench and two test pits at Richmond House Clare uncovered at least seven cut features dating between the 12th to 19th centuries. Finds from the site included 25 sherds of medieval pottery dated from the 12th to 14th centuries although the majority of these were found in later contexts. The evaluation has provided evidence for the occupation of Nethergate Street from the medieval period (S1).
2012: An archaeological excavation was carried out at Richmond House, Clare, in September 2012 in advance of the construction of a swimming pool. A number of large pits of medieval date were encountered, along with some early post-medieval and modern pits/garden rubbish pits. The animal bone assemblage may indicate some form of hide working tacking place in the vacinity of the site in the 12th-14th centuries (S2).
