Type and Period (1)
October 1992: A 1.4m by 1.3m trench was excavated through deposits on the line of the Greyfriars precinct wall. The footing trench for the wall was found and turned out to be 1.4m wide and 0.8m deep. The footing trench, which bottomed out on natural, was composed of alternate layers of clay, mortar and gravelly loam. Both the footing and the layers it cut through produced finds. The ground level on the inside of the wall was 0.7m higher than that of the outside of the wall.
Finds consisted:- Layer A (Footing trench for Med wall) - 22 sherds of Med coarse pottery (plus 2 rims & 1 base), 1 piece iron slag, 1 piece lava quern, 5 peg tile fragments (1 green glazed), 1 ? pantile or pipe fragment and 1 fragment brick. Layer B: 1 Med coarse sherd. Layer C: 9 Med coarse sherds (plus 3 base, 1 rim) and 1 piece slag (S1).
