Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was conducted on land to the rear of 87 High Street Sutton (TL 4421 7872) in advance of the development of five residential units. This archaeological evaluation was carried out between 9th and 11th February 2009. The evaluation revealed post-medieval features including ditches quarrying and possible garden activity. There was also some evidence, in the form of residual pottery, that there had been Prehistoric and Roman activity. Based on the significance of the results of this evaluation two further trenches were required. This took place between 11th and 16th March 2009 and consisted of two larger trenches. These revealed boundary ditches relating to the post Medieval periods and a large area of quarrying. Artefacts recovered included Medieval metalwork and Early post Medieval pottery recovered from two boundary ditches in the north-west corner of trench 5.
