Evaluation trenches revealed evidence for medieval settlement along the edge of Carlton Green; including a line of 4 large post-holes 2m intervals and a flint constructed wall/footings possibly part of the same large building. A series of boundary ditches and metalled track were also identified (S1)(S2).
Excavation - (no report) - On the medieval green edge, at least three phases of ditched enclosure could be recognised with a break in the north-east corner that held a well. This area contained a variety of small pits, slots, post-holes and concentrations of flint cobbles, possibly post-pads, suggesting a small structure. Subsequent earth moving in the vicinity revealed a spread of medieval pottery to the west and one panel of an enammelled, gilded bronze triptych. Monitoring of the green edge a further 200m to the east revealed a further scatter of medieval pottery (S3).
