Medieval history is uncovered in Crawley

Developers have discovered items dating back to medieval times during an archaeological dig in the town centre. Trenches have been dug at the Sussex House site in the first stage of its regeneration.

And contractors have found evidence that the site was being lived or worked on between the 11th and 16th centuries.

On January 9 work began on digging two trenches inside the car park and another two on the outskirts of the site, which is between High Street and Peglar Way.

In two of the trenches, which have been dug to a depth of about half a metre, six square post holes, a drainage ditch and a layer of iron work waste have been found.
