__Agenda Topic(s)__
*8.1.2 How were towns organised and planned, and how did population growth impact upon their internal spatial organisation?
*8.1.4 What can studies of environmental data, artefacts and structural remains tell us about variations in diet, living conditions and status?
*8.8.2 Can we establish a dated type series for ceramics (building in particular upon unpublished urban pit and well groups)?
__Research Objective(s)__
*8I Develop further the study of ceramic assemblages
__How has this work addressed the Research Agenda and Strategy?__
The project is currently at Updated Project Design stage, and is a work in progress.
The site lies in the Norman "New Borough" of Northampton and was preceded by significant medieval occupation, malting and baking, followed by clearance and abandonment. A single late medieval stone tenement survived on St Johns Street that was extended and refurbished in the late 15th century. The building had three clay-floored rooms, a kitchen range with bread oven and hearths, and a yard with outhouse and wells. The house lay within an area of otherwise abandoned space, until the 18th-century.
Another building was established on Fetter Street after c1450, which was the first archaeological indication for this street¬タルs existence. The Fetter Street tenement had a relatively short duration and pottery in the abandonment and demolition levels suggested that it ceased to exist by c1550.
The period of the 17th¬タモ18th centuries was marked by dark loamy soils associated with gardens and orchards, until the construction of stables and terraced buildings, and the historically recorded developments thereafter. Much of this is likely to reflect late post-medieval town planning and economic expansion.
Further investigation of the shellfish and animal bone will provide more in-depth analysis of the early post-medieval assemblages. It will contribute to the study of diet, craft/industrial resource exploitation, social/economic status and site conditions through waste disposal.
The existing Northamptonshire Ceramic Type Series (CTS) forms the basis for all pottery coding. All of the pottery has been coded to the CTS for the present report. Previously unknown or unidentified ceramics are continually added to the CTS and published on a site by site basis until such a time as funding is available to collate these additions.
