Dating Narrative

    • This large quarry pit was dug for the gravels of the site area. Therefore the fills are not seen as part of this subgroup as the pit was not dug to take them, they formed part of a later back filling process. However, the earliest back fill, (642), produced 54 pot sherds. Of these, 45 were dated to 1480-1550AD, the remainder were dated to 1400-1500AD, and these latter finds are seen as residual.
