Abstract :
Contains reports on three excavations as well as five watching briefs and trial trenches north of the river Little Ouse in Thetford. The principal aim of this work was to elucidate details of Late Saxon and medieval settlement in this hitherto little-investigated area, and to set the results against those from a series of extensive excavations which have taken place on the south bank of the river. These aims have been realised to a certain degree in showing that, as has long been suspected, there was a Late Saxon defensive circuit on the north bank which enclosed a contemporary settlement established at least as early as AD 1000. This settlement was smaller and on the available evidence, of lower density than that on the south bank and probably largely domestic in character. ;
