Excavation of Neolithic Settlement at Market Street
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.
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!
