Oxford Archaeology East were commissioned to undertake archaeological evaluation trenching and a photographic survey at Norwich School. Two trenches were located in the grounds of the school and the former Bishops Palace. The photographic survey concentrated on a section of the Cathedral precinct wall where re-opening of a blocked gateway is proposed.
Trench one revealed a layer of loose flint rubble sealing a homogenous buried soil. A driveway and associated sub strata was found within Trench two sealing a post medieval pit which truncated a medieval buried soil.
The Cathedral precinct wall, whilst certainly medieval in origin, displays numerous phases of repair and rebuilding mostly relating to the 18th and 19th centuries.
