Abstract

An archaeological evaluation at 23 South Park Street, Chatteris (TL393 857) has shown that possible medieval features survive towards the rear of the property, but that the front of the property has largely been disturbed by 19th and 20th century drains, cess-pits and levelling. The property is close to Chatteris Priory, and fragments of the Priory walls still survive along parts of South Park Street, therefore the site may be within the precincts of the Priory. The features found were much truncated but include possible structural features such as a post hole and an L shaped gully. Two large sherds of unabraded medieval pottery were recovered from these features (7 and 30) which were clearly sealed beneath a later deposit.
