Abstract

2011 saw the seventh year of test pit excavation within
currently occupied rural settlements (CORS) in East
Anglia carried out under the supervision of Access
Cambridge Archaeology (ACA) directed by Dr Carenza
Lewis at the University of Cambridge. As in previous
years, this archaeological activity combines education
and university outreach (particularly within the secondary
school sector) with the archaeological investigation
of currently occupied rural settlements (CORS). Short
summaries of the results of the University of Cambridge
CORS excavations are published annually in Medieval
Settlement Research (Lewis 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008,
2009, 2010), and online at http://www.arch.cam.ac.uk/
aca/excavationreports.html. This website also includes
pottery reports from each site and maps showing
the distribution of pottery period by period from the
prehistoric to the modern era for every settlement where
test pit excavations have been carried out by ACA since
2005. Anyone wishing to fully appreciate the summaries
in this paper is advised to visit the website and read the
text in conjunction with viewing the maps.
