Abstract:
Archaeological investigations in 2002 at the site of the former White Horse public house at 9--11 Poplar High Street revealed evidence of medieval and post-medieval settlement. Medieval remains included a fired surface, possibly part of a kiln or oven and itself sealed by backfills which contained pottery sherds dated to between 1240--1350. Subsequently a sequence of probable malting kilns or grain ovens was constructed. A shallow cellar to the north of the kiln sequence may have been a processing area. A charred deposit overlying the floor of the cellar was found to comprise mainly charcoal fragments including twigs and straw. A similar charred deposit from a sixteenth-century pit to the north contained large amounts of straw, cereal chaff and cereal grains. The kilns and cellar were backfilled with a mixture of mortar, brick and tile. A pit cut into the backfill contained pottery dated to the late-sixteenth century, as did two pits in the central area of the site. A tavern called The White Horse stood on the site from 1690 to immediately prior to the investigation. The earlier building was apparently demolished in the eighteenth century, and the debris layer contained a mix of artefacts and pottery, the latter dated to between 1745 and 1770. Also found were two Chinese porcelain bowls, an English porcelain saucer, two London stoneware tankards, a whiteware chamber pot, and three gaming counters made from sherds of tin-glazed ware. Other artefacts included drinking glasses, a small glass bowl and glass bottles. A large assemblage of nineteenth-century ceramics, glass and other finds were recovered from a soakaway and cesspit.
