Medieval remains found in Manor Road, Lancing, West Sussex.
An assessment excavation was carried out by CBAS at 67 Manor Road, Lancing in advance of the construction of two new houses. The site occupies a street frontage adjacent to the parish church and on what may have been the main Medieval street through Lancing village.
A total of five evaluation trenches were excavated, which revealed a series of Medieval features dating from between the late 12th and mid 14th centuries. These features included a number of probable rubbish pits, which contained pottery, animal bone and marine molluscs. There was also a ditch, of late 12th to mid 13th century date, running parallel to Manor Road with adjacent post holes, possibly from a fence, which may have formed a rear boundary to a property on the street frontage.
