This volume is a catalogue of the finds excavated by the Norwich Survey between 1971 and 1978, with the exception of pottery and clay tobacco pipes, separately published. The finds are classified broadly as dress and personal possessions, furnishings and household equipment, building materials; occupations, industry and crafts; and pastimes. Within each group the finds are catalogued according to material.
The forty sites which were excavated and researched were primarily those threatened by development, and as such do not necessarily provide a comprehensive record of the town during the period. Nevertheless, the finds can provide rich and varied evidence about the life of the people of Norwich, often illuminating the ordinary households seldom recorded in documents.
