The thirteenth season of excavations at this medieval site which became a courtier’s and then Henry VIII’s royal palace in north London will focus on exploring the rest of a range of buildings on the south side of the palace under excavation since 2014. The aim is to define the extent and internal arrangements of the whole range, three rooms of it and a well preserved stairwell having been explored in 2016 and the substantial moat fronted facade having been excavated in previous seasons. Only shallowly covered by often artifact rich demolition material it is hoped to shed further light on the status of this range which had tiled floors in some areas and may well be on the outer edge of the Tudor royal apartments.
