Finds Update – Roman Pottery and Worked Stone

We’ve had some great finds from Trench 1 yesterday and today. Of particular interest are two fragments of roman pottery (possible samian ware), from a context that is currently thought to be medieval. We also had a piece of worked stone from the same context.

The roman pottery fragment recovered from Trench 1 yesterday.

Roman pottery in a medieval context suggests that there may be a pit or other cut feature nearby – as we work, we’ll be re-visiting this initial, very tentative interpretation. We’ll let you know what we find!
