Notes about this historic site

1 An archaeological evaluation of land at the Dilke Arms, Ryton-on-Dunsmore, in the centre of the Medieval village, recovered some evidence for Medieval activity, dating back to the 13th century, in the form of a pit and gullies. Part of a single Medieval structure was also noted.
2 Archaeological observation in August 1997 of six ground investigation trial pits revealed nothing of archaeological significance, apart from three undated ditches and gullies in one trial pit. No finds other than Post Medieval and modern pottery and tile were recovered from the pits.
