Keywords: medieval, pits, gully, post-medieval, modern
The site lies on the northern edge of both the modern village of Tolleshunt D’Arcy and its historic medieval core.
A 10% evaluation by seventeen trial-trenches revealed evidence of medieval, post-medieval and modern activity concentrated on the street frontages of North Street and Chapel Road. Evidence of medieval activity took the form of two pits, and a gully. Most of the excavated features were connected with the post-medieval and modern phases of the Thatcher’s Arms public house.
