Summary

An archaeological evaluation was carried out on land to North of The Street, Erwarton in advance of a proposal for residential development and associated parking.

A number of features of archaeological interest were recorded during the work. Towards the rear of the site there was a boundary ditch and re-cut dating to the early 1st century AD. The rest of the trench was taken up by two phases of a timber building dating to the 11th or 12th century, and associated rubbish or cess pits in use perhaps until the late medieval period. Finds from the prehistoric, Roman, medieval and post-medieval periods were collected during the evaluation.
