Medieval, 16th, Early 17th Century


The assemblage comprised four discrete inhumations and some disarticulated bone representing a minimum of six individuals. All were male or probable male. Notable features included dental wear associated with the use of clay tobacco pipes, healed rib fractures and a depressed skull fracture. The burials have been dated to the early post-medieval period and are probably 16th or early 17th century. They may originally have been within the boundary of a much larger parish church or alternatively could be the burials of executed prisoners.
