A watching brief was undertaken by Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) on
10th June 2000, at Rose Cottage, Melkinthorpe (NGR SD 49637032). The work was
commissioned by Stephen Wild and was intended to record archaeological deposits
impacted by the construction of a bungalow to the rear of Rose Cottage.
The watching brief uncovered no structures or features of an archaeological nature but did
identify a number of medieval pottery sherds, although these were within the top soil. The
presence of the ceramics indicates medieval activity at or in the vicinity of the site, but
could have been spread onto the area as a result of the night-soiling of fields and this does
not necessarily indicate the presence of any structural features within the extent of the site.
