1 Evidence for 16th/17th century deposits, possibly associated with the leper hospital or almshouses were recorded in trench two. These included yard surfaces and possibly a ditch that appeared to have formed a boundary around the chapel. Both yard and ditch became redundant in the 19th century when the boundaries for new properties fronting Birmingham Road were installed. Building materials recoverd from the area probably belonged to structures of medieval or post medieval date, possibly part of the leper hospital, that were demolished at this time.
2 Residual sherd of 14th/15th century pottery recovered during archaeological observation of groundworks.
3 A similar surface was discovered by an evaluation in 2004 at the former leper hospital just to the west.

Word or Phrase
period Medieval 1066 AD to 1539 AD (the 11th century AD to the 16th century AD)

The medieval period comes after the Saxon period and before the post medieval period.

The Medieval period begins in 1066 AD.
This was the year that the Normans, led by William the Conqueror (1066 – 1087), invaded England and defeated Harold Godwinson at the Battle of Hastings in East Sussex.
The Medieval period includes the first half of the Tudor period (1485 – 1603 AD), when the Tudor family reigned in England and eventually in Scotland too.

The end of the Medieval period is marked by Henry VIII’s (1509 – 1547) order for the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the years running up to 1539 AD. The whole of this period is sometimes called the Middle Ages.
