Medieval activity at The Lunt
Excavation of the western defences at the Lunt suggested that the wide ditch was medieval or possibly later.
1 Excavation of the western defences in 1998 suggested that the wide ditch was medieval and possibly later. The ditch appeared to have been deliberately backfilled with a mixture of charcoal, mortar, daub and gravel contexts. At the north east corner of the ditch there were the probable remains of three large circular pits. Most of the finds were RB, but a sherd of medieval/early post medieval pottery was found. The fill of the outer ditch also produced medieval pottery.
