Abstract:
The excavations revealed evidence from the twelfth century into the modern period. Environmental analysis showed that the site was open wet pasture during the twelfth century and development began in the early to mid thirteenth century with the construction of two cob buildings. One of these was soon replaced by a building at least partly of stone, and environmental evidence suggested that there was a medicinal herb garden associated with it. Three successive stone buildings subsequently occupied the site into the modern period, the last having been a public house. The second cob building was demolished in the fourteenth century and the land was subsequently cleared, remaining undeveloped until the seventeenth century, when it may have been occupied by a timber-framed house. The medieval development of the area is considered in the context of these results, and those from other excavations in the vicinity. There are reports on: `The medieval and post-medieval pottery' by Catherine Underwood-Keevill (243--51); `Small finds' by Leigh Allen (251--8); `Stone objects' by Fiona Roe (258); `Animal bones' by Bob Wilson (258--60); and `Macroscopic plant remains' by Mark Robinson (260--7).
