Abstract:
[ST 484383]. A monastic settlement was established at Beckery in the middle Saxon period. Sixty-three graves have been excavated, and traces of wattle-and-daub buildings which may include a timber chapel or tomb-shrine. There was also a two-phase ditch which may have delimited the settlement at one time; environmental evidence from it is reported. In the late Saxon or early medieval period a two-cell stone chapel was built on the site with substantial stone and timber structures and ditches. The chapel was rebuilt in an enlarged form in the late 13th century. Finds include pre-Conquest pottery and metalwork and a series of medieval floor tiles. There is a detailed report on 46 skeletons.
