Archaeological Evaluation (October 1999)

NO51NW 235 51031 16663

NO 510 166 The gardens behind the Department of Medieval History were evaluated in October 1999 in advance of a proposed laboratory development for the Department of Psychology. Three trenches, each 2m square, were dug by hand in the W part of the garden. Deep deposits (over 1m) of medieval garden soil were found to underlie the existing turf and topsoil and a modern garden soil. Two pits with medieval pottery, a post-hole, and a clay surface, all of medieval date, were located in one trench. The edge of a stone and rubble-filled feature was found in another trench, and a robber trench for a 19th-century boundary wall in another. Finds include medieval and post-medieval pottery, animal bone, clay pipes, glass, tiles, shells and metalwork, including an iron blade. (SUAT SA40).
