Archaeology Notes

NS56NE 3028.01 573 651

NS 573 651 A watching brief in April 2002 uncovered a series of pits containing waster sherds from the Verreville Pottery, which was situated immediately to the N of the site. Sherds include slipware, transfer ware, hand-painted wares and sponge-printed wares. All are represented in both their bisque and glazed states. Preliminary analysis suggests that most of the sherds date to the period when the pottery was owned by John Geddes (1802-30).
