Abstract:
The excavations at the Chimes Shopping Centre have given archaeologists the opportunity to trace the development of the medieval town of Uxbridge. The central part of the town was set out during the twelfth century, perhaps as a planned extension of an existing Saxon hamlet. The borough ditch, which marked the boundary of the town, follows the line of George Street. Just inside this, the discovery of a pottery kiln, producing South Hertfordshire greyware shows that Uxbridge was a centre for pottery production throughout the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Medieval expansion south along the High Street can be identified, along with periods of prosperity and recession. Evidence of industrial processes, particularly tanning, date from the seventeenth century onwards, and can be associated with denser occupation along the High Street. By the early nineteenth century the entire street frontage was built up. Includes a special section on the production and distribution of early South Hertfordshire-type greyware, and special reports on building materials, accessioned finds and animal bone; also includes French and German summaries.
