Between 28th October 2013 and 30th October 2013, Oxford Archaeology East carried out a small excavation (820 sqm) on land to the south of Norwich Common Road, Wymondham, Norfolk. A large boundary ditch was uncovered along with a subsidiary ditch running perpendicular to the main boundary. Similarly, a small gully ran off the main boundary. All features were dated to the post-medieval period by the presence of a field drain tile found at the base of the larger boundary ditch. The boundary ditches may represent the enclosure of Wymondham common by the local manor. No other features of archaeological interest were recorded on the site and no earlier residual finds were recovered.
