Type and Period (5)
Monitoring of footings for an extension at the rear of No 6 St Mary's Square, Bury St Edmunds revealed a concentration of cut features sealed beneath a layer of re-deposited clay. The features included large rubbish pits, a posthole and possible ditch; features typical of a backyard within medieval urban Bury. The features produced very few finds and the only datable material was two sherds of coarseware pottery dating to the L12th-14th century. The clay was an even depth and rectilinear in plan and thought to be a floor or surface probably dating to the early post medieval period. A flint and brick lined well, dating to 16-17th century was also recorded (S1).
