Description

The groundworks revealed layers of modern-overburden overlying a mixture of historic ploughsoils and up-cast material relating to the construction of the building’s cellar in the late 19th century. A concentration of residual Roman and medieval ceramics was noted, suggesting that settlement activity of this date may survive at greater depth.
