Full Description

2012 Evaluation identified a number of medieval features and pottery (S1).

2015: Excavation revealed a series of features interpreted as pits, postholes and gullies associated with a single domestic house plot located on the edge of the village of Whatfield. Evidence in the form of foundation slots suggests a single building (13.5mx4.9m). The building was a simple rectangular building constructed of upright posts set in a ground beams and infilled with wattle and daub. A number of post-holes and slots are also present which are probably related to alterations and repairs to this structure. Pottery recovered from the features suggests the site was relatively short lived with occupation being limited to the 11th century only (S2).
