Strip, map and record excavation and watching brief by S Westall of AOC revealed a layer of loose, light brown sand, 0.13–0.24m thick, containing a large quantity of worked Mesolithic flints; none were in situ, having been deposited through colluvial or fluvial activity. Two ditches of Roman or possibly medieval date and a Saxon pit were also recorded.
This guide is a collection of links to online resources useful for the study of medieval landscapes in the historic county of Surrey, put together by Rob Briggs, Historic Environment Record Officer for Surrey County Council. It acts as a follow-up to a Surrey Archaeological Society study day about the medieval landscape in March 2020, with a focus not on medieval towns and villages but on the surrounding manors, farms, fields and other rural institutions.
