Abstract:
This report outlines the history and recent archaeological investigations around the Butter Cross (or Puleston Cross) (NGR SJ 74522 19146), located in High Street, Newport, Shropshire. The Butter Cross has been designated a Scheduled Monument (Ref: 151). Investigations included an archaeological watching brief in advance and during groundworks and improvements to the High Street. The aim of the watching brief was to record any surviving archaeology which was present within the area of the development area. As a result the watching brief uncovered a number of significant features including levelling episodes for construction or repair of the cross, a layer of burnt material, demolition deposits, the foundations of the former Butter Market building, commercial and domestic buildings that formed the northern terrace to Middle Row (an early post-medieval development within this part of the High Street) and an array of artefacts that date from the postmedieval period. A buried soil beneath the cross base has been dated by Optically Stimulated Luminescence methods to AD 1095 (AD 916 - 1205), and a disturbance event probably detected dated to around 1635 (AD 1577 - 1698).
