Abstract:
Presents the results of evaluation and excavation work between 1995 and 1999. Twelfth- or thirteenth-century land consolidation was succeeded by three periods of building from the thirteenth century onwards. A thick, site-wide deposit of crushed chalk was used to stabilize the land prior to construction. The ten to twelve buildings represented may include The Bell & Cock and The Unicorn - `stews' or inns known from documentary sources. A dump of Surrey Whiteware pottery was recovered. Sixteenth- and seventeenth-century buildings included a possible kennel and a multi-sided building that may have been an animal-baiting arena. Evidence for the butchery of predominantly old horses may indicate feeding of dogs kept for animal-baiting. A dump of tin-glazed pottery (delftware) from a reused medieval cellar provided the first excavated evidence for the Bear Gardens pothouse in operation from 1702 to 1710. Glass and glassworking debris may emanate from a nearby glasshouse that operated between c.1671 and 1748. The final phase of excavated buildings represent eighteenth- and nineteenth-century activity and reflect the later use of the site as a foundry and metalworks. Excavation was only undertaken in areas that would have been affected by development work with preservation in situ where possible. Includes French and German summaries and specialist reports on:
