Summary

An evaluation was carried out on an area outside the scheduled part of Mettingham Castle. Test pitting indicated that the spoil from the construction of the moat had been used to raise the level of the internal area; however no evidence for a buried soil was recorded. Although some artefacts were recovered, which correspond to periods of known activity, there were not enough to indicate occupation in the immediate vicinity.
