Abstract

2012 saw the eighth 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 project involves members of the public in the academic archaeological investigation of currently occupied rural settlements (CORS) with the aim of advancing knowledge and understanding of the historic development of non-deserted rural settlements, while inspiring members of the public and raising academic aspirations among teenage school pupils (Lewis 2007a). Short summaries of the results of the University of Cambridge CORS excavations are published annually in Medieval Settlement Research (Lewis 2005; 2006; 2007b; 2008; 2009; 2010; 2012), and online as they become available (at http://www.arch.cam.ac.uk/aca/ excavationreports.html). The ACA website includes pottery reports and maps showing the distribution of pottery for every 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 explore the summaries in this paper further is advised to visit the website and read the text in conjunction with the maps.
