Notes about this historic site

1 40 sherds of Medieval pottery dating from the 12th – 14th centuries and 12 other sherds, dating from the 18th – 19th centuries, were found on the plot. It is likely that they came from the soil previously removed from the new house plot. No archaeological features were visible but the lack of abrasion in the pottery suggested that the area had not been ploughed for an extended time. The pottery may have come from rubbish thrown to the rear of the farm over many years or represent pottery disturbed from medieval contexts in the past.
