Post-medieval wall and pottery, rear of Arrow House, Church Street, Alcester
An area of brick rubble marking the line of a former wall of 17th/18th century date and a large number of finds of post-medieval pottery were noted during archaeological observation to the rear of Arrow House, Church Street, Alcester.
1 Line of rubble indicates a former brick wall aligned NE-SW across the site to the rear. Bricks are hand-made and thought to be C17-C18th in date. A large number of finds of post-medieval pottery were noted, mostly from the 17th-19th centuries. The majority of the pottery was recovered from the lower part of the topsoil layer. A charcoal-flecked layer below the topsoil appeared more likely to be a genuine archaeological horizon and a sherd of 16th/17th century German stoneware was recovered from its surface. However, none of this area was excavated.
