Introduction

Excavations at Good Shepherd Hospital, Exeter 1979 (Exeter archive site 70)

A trial excavation at Good Shepherd Hospital in 1979, showed that all Roman deposits in this area had been removed by terracing in the 16th century. The presence of a few human bones in the topsoil suggests that there may have been an inhumation cemetery here in the Roman period. A pit and a ditch dating to the period 1610-30 produced useful groups of pottery including early clay pipes and part of a Raeren stoneware panel jug.
