Abstract

Archaeology South-East carried out an archaeological watching brief and historic building survey at The George Hotel, Rye, East Sussex (now ‘The George in Rye’). This was undertaken as part of the conversion of adjoining buildings to hotel storage and accommodation, as well as the remodelling of existing elements of the inn. Residual material dating to the end of the early medieval period was encountered; however, most of the archaeological features were of 13th- and 14th-century origin. These comprised pits and a well, characteristic of ‘yards’, as well as a fenced (and possibly ditched) boundary, relating to a burgage plot. The fieldwork produced a small but important medieval pottery assemblage that, combined with other material, allowed the creation of a town series. Further remains comprised deposits of garden soil, as well as structural features connected to post-medieval properties. This article is the result of a modern, multi-disciplinary approach, incorporating historical and archaeological evidence as well as building recording.
