Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was carried out by Oakford Archaeology at North Hall, Widecombe-in-the-Moor, Devon (SX 7184 7690), during July 2012. The work comprised the hand-excavation of three trenches totalling 54m in length and 1m wide. The trenches targeted a series of anomalies identified during the geophysical survey. The works exposed the heavily robbed out remains of a single N-S aligned wall, while large areas of the interior where covered in small, loose stone rubble. No evidence for internal floors or external surfaces was uncovered and it is thought that the site was comprehensively robbed from the mid-17th century onwards. A single large postpit was identified underneath the rubble spread, possibly suggesting an earlier building phase. Excavations at the northern end of the site uncovered the remains of the robbed-out revetment wall lining the inside edge of the moat. Excavations at the western end of the site revealed at least two phases of earthen bank behind the moat. Evidence of a beamslot would suggest that the rear of the later bank would have had some kind of timber revetment. Five sherds from a possible 'North French Barrel Costrel', dating to the 13th-14th century, were recovered from the infilling of the beamslot behind the earthen bank. The finds recovered from the site contained large quantities of late 18th-19th century blue-and-white transfer print, as well as tobacco pipe stems and a number of plain bowls. Sixty-two sherds of medieval coarsewares, dating to the 13th-15th century were recovered, as well as two sherds of 'Valencian Lustre Ware'. This is a 15th century high status, good quality pottery from western Spain.
