The medieval finds
Lead Window, Knives Buckles, Stone Basin, Bowl, Tile, Copper Alloy, Scarborough Ware, Pottery, Brooches Artefacts
13th, 14th Centuries, Medieval
The small quantity and quality of the finds is surprising in the context of an episcopal manor but may indicate that the site was kept very clean. There is a complete lack of personal items such as knives, buckles and brooches. Artefacts included copper alloy scraps, a lead window came, part of a stone basin or bowl and roofing slates. Part of an extremely rare imported exotic Scarborough ware ridge tile or finial bearing an equestrian figure was found. Pottery was mainly Scottish redware, locally made and dating to the 13th and 14th centuries.
