Description of this historic site

Notes about this historic site

1 1908. Quarrying on Mount Pleasant led to the discovery of an Anglo-Saxon cemetery. 2 types of pottery are recorded from the cemetery. Some of the vessels were of a thick reddish brown ware which must have formed pots of considerable size, the others were rather finer and black.
2 The former type appears to be Iron Age. 5 sherds from 1 or 2 original pots are in the Warwick Museum stores. No other information is available from the site.
4 This pottery is Anglo Saxon.
