Full Description

May 1998: Monitoring of construction works located substantial assemblage of Late medieval transitional wares and early post medieval pottery. Some sherds of imported stoneware from Cologne/Frechen and Raeren/Aachen were also identifie from pits at the site. The assemblage suggests burial of rubbish during the 16th century and indicates that the floors laid above these contexts were no earlier than this date. Evidence that the existing buildings on the site were constructed post c.1600 with some evidence of activity prior to these. It is possible that Chapel Street may have run of a former defensive line to the town of Woodbridge (S1).
