Notes about this historic site

1 Saxon occupation implied by the presence of a rubbish pit containing a coin of Edward the Confessor. A coin of Cnut was also found but not in a secure context. No evidence was found of the Warwick mint, in operation from Athelstan to Stephen, although the 15th century chantry priest Rous thought that the mint had been on the site of the college.
