Excavation of Medieval Features at Bleachfield St
Two Medieval pits and an oven were excavated in Bleachfield Street, Alcester. Sherds of Medieval pottery were also found.
1 Two Medieval pits – a cesspit and a gravel pit – also a well-preserved stone drying oven consisting of a firing pit from which a well-constructed stone flue led to a stone drying-chamber of inverted conical shape. These features are presumably associated with a Medieval building underlying the present C18 cottage on the street frontage. These features produced a good group of C12-C14 pottery.
