Summary

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in advance of the construction of a number of dwellings on the site of Pear Tree House, Great Finborough, in order to characterise the nature of any surviving archaeological deposits. The site lies on the outskirts of Great Finborough, a village at least medieval in origin, and is thought to be sited on or near the edge of a former medieval green.

Three trenches were excavated over the development area, and were stripped to the level of the natural subsoil. Three pits, thought to be post medieval or modern in date were discovered in the centre of the plot, but no further archaeological evidence was revealed. No conclusive evidence to indicate the former presence of a medieval green in the area was recorded during the evaluation, though a few sherds of this date were recovered as residual finds.
