Excavations at Lawn Farm – Medieval Moated Site
1st July 1999
Progress report: 7 Photos & Mediaeval Pottery!
View through ‘dovecote’ entrance with the only squared-off ‘ashlar’ stone on the door-jamb – front left. In the centre Jamie Patrick excavates a rubble filled pit – possibly the result of post-medieval robbing. The only medieval pottery so-far this year came from this pit.
Trench 2: In the foreground the walls and stone flooring from last years dig are uncovered. The puddle in the middle is where we excavated a burnt area suggesting this was some kind of oven. At the back supervisor Alison Parkes excavates an apparent continuation of these walls.
