Abstract:
Excavations at two sites on the east side of Oakwellgate revealed archaeological deposits and features dating from the twelfth - twentieth centuries. The principal area of investigation was centred on the former Rectory site, with a smaller area to the south (formerly a medieval burgage plot). No trace of Roman occupation was found, a marked contrast to the extensive evidence of settlement found to the west at Bottle Bank, nor was there any evidence to support the long-held belief that an early church stood to the east of the twelfth century St Mary's Church. At the Rectory, features and pottery dating from the twelfth century suggest that the site was certainly occupied at the time of the first recorded rector in 1275. Substantial structural remains of the post-medieval building were found, including what appear to have been garden features. North of the Rectory were traces of a brick kiln, and waste from clay tobacco pipe manufacture in the mid-seventeenth and eighteenth centuries provided evidence for an industry of which Gateshead was, for a time, the centre on Tyneside.
