Excavation of Neolithic Settlement at Market Street

Description of this historic site

Two possible post holes were discovered during an archaeological excavation. Fragments of pottery of Neolithic date were also found. These discoveries probably represent a Neolithic settlement and were found at Market Street, Warwick.

Notes about this historic site

1 1965: One sherd of ‘Saxon’ pottery was discovered after the site was cleared down to bedrock. A 0.9m layer of dark grey clay, not from the immediate locality, was exposed, and below this in two post holes (?) were found about forty sherds of rough gritted hand-made pottery which made up five incomplete ‘Saxon’ pots.
2 The pottery is actually Neolithic not Saxon!
3 Drawings.
