Medieval village found in England

Published on May 27th, 2011 | by Admin


Construction has unearthed the remains of a medieval village in Runcorn, England.

A cobbled street and pottery dating back to the 13th century have been unearthed, near Lodge Farm, off Highgate Close in Norton.

Post holes of timber framed houses were identified by archeologists who have spent three weeks excavating the 700 sq m site, after construction was brought to a standstill.

Archeologist Jeremy Bradley, of Oxford Archeology North, said: “Most of the posts found are medieval.

“We have been able to locate the findings on a map of Norton village drawn up in 1757.”
