Notes about this historic site

1 1975: Excavation in advance of demolition of stables. Material spanning the 12th to 16th century was recovered from a large shallow pit. This pit contained bone, charcoal and Medieval pottery and was presumably used for domestic rubbish. Elder seeds were identified in a soil sample. Other Medieval features include a small section of a 13th century pit and two square (?)postholes/(?)pits.
