Abstract:
Documentary evidence relating to the site from 11th to 20th centuries is summarised; fieldwork involved a new survey of, and a section through, the south curtain wall of the castle. Some Roman flagstones were revealed but gave no assistance in determining the exact position of the fort of Pons Aelius. Documents suggest that the curtain wall may have been added during Henry II's alterations towards the end of 12th century; at some time after that the access stair to the wall was modified. The study of medieval pottery in NE England is insufficiently advanced to give much assistance in dating the structures, although this report, which contains the first large collection of stratified medieval and post-medieval pottery to be published in the NE, should now encourage further studies. Following the disuse of the curtain wall in or before the 16th century, there seems to have been partial demolition and rubbish-tipping on the site until 19th century, when buildings including a kiln and cobbler's workshop were in use on both sides of the curtain. The Roman pottery found includes two types so rare and localised in the north as to suggest import via the Tyne. The Samian collection has some unusual features. The medieval and post-medieval pottery (over 220 catalogued sherds) includes a wide range of imports from the Continent, as well as varied English wares; the approximate date range is 12th century to early 18th century.
