Record Details

NHER Number:357
Type of record:Monument
Name:Late Saxon or early medieval graves and pottery sherds

Summary

In 1977 work undetaken on the gas pipe in this area uncovered a number of human remains. In the grave fills were two fragments of 11th to 12th century rouletted Thetford type ware and a sherd of Andenne Ware, dating the graves to the Late Saxon to early medieval period. This site lies just within the boundary of the Greyfriar's Precinct (NHER 373), though these burials probably predate the arrival of the Greyfriars in 1226.
