9th July 1999
Progress report: School Visits & More Finds
Trench 1: The rubble spread in front of the ‘dovecote’ may be the remains of a ‘revetment’, a steep bank created during the building of the ‘dovecote’ and removed afterward. The stony layers formed a stable platform for construction. In the background you can see one of the many school groups who visited the site during Education Week.
Trench 1: Towards the middle of the picture you can see the excavated ‘gulley’. This has produced a quantity of 12-14th century pottery including a fragment of a high status 13th century glazed jug with applied decoration.
