Summary

The graves of at least twelve individuals were found during and archaeological monitoring of trenches excavated for an extension to the rear of 25 Out Risbygate. These were thought to be related to the nearby medieval hospital of St. Peter, now a Nursing Home, and probably indicate that a substantial cemetery existed in the eastern half of the hospital precinct. Possible evidence for a medieval building, perhaps the cemetery chapel, was also identified.
