Full Description

October 2003: Monitoring contractor's trenches revealed a thick 'black earth' deposit (up to 1.5m) containing material from the C12-C15+. Wtihin this deposit was found a cache of four near-complete C15 vessels, all imported. These vessels include a Dutch redware cauldron, a jug from south-west France, a German stoneware bottle and a whiteware jug from Surrey. To find such near-complete vessels sometimes indicates tavern clearances, but the imported nature of the finds assemblages might suggest a high status origin, possibly belonging to a merchant with international connections (S1).
