Archaeology Notes

NJ90NW 220 9415 0611

A few days' excavation after demolition of dangerous buildings allowed a small undisturbed courtyard to be explored. This lay c 40m NE of the site excavated in 1981 at 12 Martin's Lane, at which some remains of the Carmelite Friary buildings, including perhaps part of the Church, were found (see NJ90NW 49). Below the courtyard surface were layers of post-medieval and medieval garden soil. Within the soil layers were fragmentary human remains, amounting to portions of one adult and three children. This area would seem to have been within the precincts of the Friary and near the cemetery, which may have lain to the E rather than N of the Church.
