Title:Stokenham: Archaeological Survey and Excavation in 2005
Originator:Williams, H. + Turner, S.
Summary:Unique dedication of the Parish Church at Stokenham to St Humbert the Confessor with rich medieval documentation of the parish. The south-facing church is on the southeast side of the village with the site of Stokenham manor house to the east which possibly dated to the 12C & was abandoned in 1585. The church is thought to represent the Anglo-Saxon minster church of Coleridge Hundred whose royal estate was 1.5km to the west at Chillington. The topography of the village suggests the presence of a large sub-circular enclosure encompassing the church & the village green to the west with numerous slight earthworks. The area to the east of the church was surveyed in 2005 prior to an extension to the churchyard & a small excavation was undertaken.
