  • There was variation in the fill in terms of composition - the fill in the drain [9009] felt more loose however after examining the finds from (9013) and (9008) two pieces of conjoining pot were found. Due to this (9013) is equal to (9008) Pottery finds are: 1 piece of Late Hedingham type Ware (P356) - Mid 13th - mid 15th Century and 50 pieces of Late Medieval Transitional Ware LMTI &LMTII (P401/2) - ca 1400 - 1600
