List of Figures

Figure 1: Map of historic parishes east of Norwich (Kain and Oliver 2001, sheet 126).

Figure 2: Cooke's map of the fold courses east of Norwich (1718). Note 'Lumners Great Close' (centre of image), and other significant features highlighted. North is to the left of the image.

Figure 3: Anonymous map of Mousehold Heath (1589). North is at the top of the image. Note the recurrence of terrain features (including 'Great Lumners Close') in proximity to Dussindale, as identified on Cooke's map (Figure 2).

Figure 4: Anonymous undated map of Mousehold Heath (c. 1600). North is at the top of the image. Note that Lumners Close also reappears on this map.

Figure 5: Faden's one-inch-to-one-mile map of Norfolk (1797). North is at the top of the image.

Figure 6: Enclosure map of Great Plumstead and Postwick (Anon. 1812a). North is at the top of the image.

Figure 7: Terrain reconstruction of Dussindale (centre of image) and surrounding region. North is at the top of the image. Contour data shows the area's height in metres above Newlyn Datum, revealing the valley to lie between Readings Close and Great Lumners Close. OS and contour data from Edina Digimap.

Figure 8: Anonymous map of Mousehold Heath (1589) with significant terrain features marked. Harrison's description implied that Dussindale stretched from the east corner of Thorpe Common up to Drove Lane, perhaps following the route of 'Poswyck Drove Way'. Analysis of Ward's court book suggests that 'Mr Wardes Bruery' north of Readings Close, had the 'great ditch', leading to the 'great close […] containing 20 acres', on its western border.

Figure 9: Map of Dussindale with integrated contour data. Note the Old Ditch running west up the valley side (north of Readings Close), along the western edge of Ward's Bruery, and up to the western corner of the Twenty Acre Close.

Figure 10: Carter's projection of Dussindale (1984) based on superimposition of Cranly Close, Postwick Field and ancient enclosures onto 1812 enclosure map.

Figure 11: Ordnance Survey Explorer map, 1:10,000 scale colour raster © Crown Copyright/Edinburgh (2013), an Ordnance Survey/Edina Digimap supplied service. North is at the top of the image. Carter argued that Boundary Lane (now subsumed within the Business Park) was the site of the Old Ditch, and that Dussindale followed the course of Green Lane, the southern half of which has been realigned with the modern main road.

Figure 12: Google Earth image with historic enclosures superimposed from MapInfo atop the modern landscape. Carter suggested that Dussindale followed Green Lane (labelled), while terrain reconstruction shows the valley lying between Drove Lane and Boundary Lane (red line).

Figure 13: Map of area east of Norwich with north at the top of the image. Norwich is to the left (west), while Dussindale is to the right (east). The red line right of Dussindale shows the path of Green Lane North and South, which Carter argued represented the site of the valley.

Figure 14: The rebel deployment within the reconstructed landscape (with contour data). Field artillery (red circles) lay between the rebel battles, while their heavy ordnance and baggage is shown to the rear. Earthworks may have augmented the area left of Ward's Bruery, while defensive stakes were positioned directly ahead of Kett's army.

Figure 15: Map indicating the probable movement of Warwick's army (blue arrows) out of Norwich and eastwards to Dussindale via Walsham Way. The loyalists' heavier guns (red arrows) may have continued along Walsham Way before taking the 'green way' south-east.

Figure 16: The loyalist army's probable deployment within the reconstructed landscape (shown with contour data).

Figure 17: Google Earth image (with superimposed enclosures) annotated to show approximate position of both armies' deployments within the modern landscape. The red line shows the bottom of the valley of Dussindale.

Figure 18: Google Earth image annotated to show the approximate area in which round-shot from the rebels' artillery might be recovered.

Figure 19: Diagram of combat between loyalists and rebels within the reconstructed landscape. The loyalist attack on the rebel positions, with Warwick's cavalry preparing the way for the infantry assault, while the loyalist artillery remains to the rear and provides supporting fire.

Figure 20: Google Earth image showing areas of archaeological potential. The red-bordered circle shows the probable area of round-shot from the rebels' artillery, while the black and purple-bordered circles denotes the zone in which the loyalists' small arms shot and round-shot might be found. The rebels' archery would have deposited thousands of iron arrowheads in the red-bordered square between these points, although they would be unlikely to survive in the area's topsoil.

Figure 21: The insurgents' flight across the open ground of the Doles and Smee (red arrows) left their artillery and baggage stranded within Cranly Close, allowing the loyalists to encircle this position during their pursuit.

Figure 22: Google Earth image annotated to show the rebels' retreat. Archaeological excavation may discern scattered artefacts or human remains across this region, while the potential for mass graves also exists.
