Abstract


Excavations undertaken in 1985 revealed four burgage plots with occupation spanning the mid-thirteenth to the early-fifteenth centuries. Evidence for malting, in the form of a kiln and coble, was recovered in an area relatively undeveloped until the eighteenth century. There are specialist reports on:`The pottery' by Peter Cheer (712--18); `The artefacts' by Adrian Cox (718--24) including a note on the `Coins' by Nicholas Holmes (724); `Animal bone' by Catherine Smith (725--6); `Botanical remains' by Alan Fairweather (726--7).
