Abstract:
Excavations in Warwick in the winter of 1983-4 uncovered part of the extra-mural medieval suburb of Bridge End, which grew up where the roads from London, Myton and Bishop's Itchington joined to cross the bridge over the River Avon. The excavation uncovered a causeway on the approaches to the bridge, which must have been in existence by c AD 1200. A series of timber-framed houses was built on the frontage until the area was finally cleared at the turn of the nineteenth century. The archaeological remains relate largely to the thirteenth-sixteenth centuries AD but the documentary records continue the story through the following two hundred and fifty years.Smithing seems to have been one of the most important trades here although most of the evidence for this comes from documentary rather than archaeological sources. Good groups of stratified medieval pottery were found along with assemblages of domestic metalwork and bone. Reports are included on: `The medieval pottery' Stephanie </ze> Ratkai (33-58), `The ironworking residues: summary' J G </ze> McDonnell (58), `The animal bone: summary and conclusions' Julie </ze> Hamilton (58), `The charred plant remains: summary' Lisa </ze> Moffett (58-9), and `Documentary records of the site' Christine </ze> Hodgetts (59-65). Fuller reports are included on microfiche: `The post-medieval pottery' Stephanie Ratkai (C4), `The tile' Stephanie Ratkai (D4), `The iron objects' Ian H </ze> Goodall (D11), `The copper alloy objects' Alison R </ze> Goodall (E1), `The coins' W A </ze> Seaby (E4), `The ironworking residues' J G McDonnell (E4), `The clay tobacco pipes' Nicholas </ze> Palmer (E7), `The animal bone' Julie Hamilton (E8), `The charred plant remains' Lisa Moffett (F3).
