    • CBM report by Rebekah Pressler - "Of further interest are a group of partially reduced roof tiles and a single brick from this layer. All of which date to the Late Medieval period. Four of the tiles and the brick fragment exhibit signs of burning or signifying they may have been re-used for a later hearth or fireplace"
