Archaeology Notes

NO12SW 251 119 236.

A watching brief on contractors' trenches and ground reduction on a yard to the rear of the High Street property revealed the floor slabs and foundations of the former Victorian building below which were showing undisturbed deposits to a depth of at least 0.80m. Dark midden deposits, oyster shell and post-medieval pottery were revealed.
