Possible Medieval field boundary at Cawston

Description of this historic site

The remains of a ditch, possibly of Medieval date, were found during an excavation. The ditch might be part of a larger Medieval field system at Cawston.

Notes about this historic site

1 Archaeological observation of soil stripping on this site in 1998 (WA 8325) revealed the remains of a ditch running apx SE-NW but not on the exact alignment of the present boundary. The line of the ditch does not correspond to field boundaries marked on 17th century to 19th century maps, suggesting it is an older boundary and may therefore be part of the Medieval field system of Cawston. No finds were recovered.
