Description

Relatively large quantities of finds were noted from the excavated material. Examination of these indicated that probably all of the excavated material was of relatively modern origin although a fewpieces of probably 18th century stoneware were mixed in with the later finds. Nothing earlier was observed as coming from the excavated material below the slipway and there was no evidence for timber or stonework from earlier riverside staiths, which probably lay lower down, and to the northwest of the works. Dating of the mixed silts and levelling deposits from below the concrete was problematic but on the evidence of an intact perfume bottle, was thought to be c.1910 or later. The latest finds included whisky bottles with metal screw caps and therefore it was likely that none of the deposits seen during the work predate the 20th century and all appeared to be levelling for the construction of the slipway being removed.
