Summary

Monitoring of the groundworks for an extension at the rear of No.7 Sparhawk Street, Bury St. Edmunds revealed an area of extensive pitting, typical of a backyard within medieval urban Bury. The date range of the finds showed that activity on the site occurred from the 12th century with the latest pit being infilled during the late medieval period. Pottery included Bury coarseware, Bury shell-dusted ware and a body sherd of Grimston-type Thetford ware.
