Type and Period (2)
This well, at the north end of the site, close to the Buttermarket frontage, did not reach the modern water table and any timber lining had decayed. The well pit was roughly circular, 1.6-1.8m across and 5.75m deep. The lowest 6Ocm of fill could not be excavated and the depth was confirmed with an auger. Below the subsided top layer of dark loam, the fill was predominantly layers of light sands, gravels and silts. A 100g sample from a localised concentration of charred material was flotated. It included charcoal, fruitstones of Prunus spinosa, seeds of Malus and a charred seed of Vicia/Lathyrus (Murphy 2004, 11), (S1).
