Abstract

An archaeological evaluation at No. 11a Lawn Lane, Sutton, produced a wealth of medieval remains, characterised as backyard type activity throughout the medieval period. Of special interest are Late Saxon or Saxo-Norman remains in the northern part of the site, a large quarry pit with a potentially important assemblage of high medieval pottery and evidence which suggests the extension of Oates Lane towards the fen edge at the southern end of the site. Working conditions were made extremely difficult by the deep accumulation of topsoil and the saturated nature of the soil, producing a great deal of flooding.
