Summary

A programme of archaeological excavation and monitoring in advance of residential development on land to the rear of Manson House, Northgate Street, identified significant evidence of medieval occupation and domestic or semi-industrial/agricultural activity relating to food production or brewing during the 12th-14th centuries, despite being limited to a piecemeal investigation of just a small proportion of the overall plot, and affected by high levels of modern disturbance.
