Record Details

NHER Number:4255
Type of record:Monument
Name:Shouldham Priory and multi-period finds

Summary

This is the site of Shouldham Priory. It was established in about 1190 for Gilbertine monks and nuns and was dissolved in 1538. The ruins were removed in part during 1840 when stained glass, a stone coffin and a skull in a vessel were found. Since this time the site has been subject to numerous investigations, excavations and photographic surveys. This work has shown that the present Abbey Farm house sits over the nave of the Priory church and incorporates several blocks of medieval ashlar. It is also apparent that the majority of the earthworks lie to the south of the building and consist of quite complex water channels, rectangular enclosures and fishponds. As one would expect, a great variety of finds have been recovered from the Priory including medieval stone coffins, a medieval page turner, a Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age arrowhead, a Roman coin hoard and numerous pottery sherds from various periods. A Middle Bronze Age cremation cemetery, remnants of an undated road, a Roman kiln, a post-medieval well and post-medieval houses have also been uncovered here.
Metal-detecting between 2009 and 2016 has recovered a large number of Roman coins as well as Roman brooches, a bracelet fragment, an inlay enamel seal box lid and a knife handle; a Late Saxon/medieval staff or sceptre terminal; medieval to post-medieval buckles; medieval coins, a jetton, a harness pendant, thimble, harness mount and seal matrix; a medieval/post-medieval vessel drop handle and a post-medieval spur fragment, harness mount and incomplete pair of dividers.

Full description

Gilbertine Priory, for monks and nuns.
Ruins in part removed 1840 when stained glass, stone coffin and skull in vessel found.
1867. Stone coffin found.
1871. Stone coffin found.
1940. Medieval tile and metalwork dug up.
1946. Medieval book tweezers or goldsmith's tool found.
1949-51. Roman coins, sherds and other items found.

Pre 1951. Stray Find.
Several undated objects seen by R. R. Clarke [14] that had apparently been found "north of Abbey Farm House". These included:
1 bone tool (possibly for pottery decoration).
1 spindle whorl of red pottery.
1 baked clay object resembling a sling shot bullet.
1 clay cup with coarse decoration initially identified as a Middle Bronze Age 'incense cup'. This object was donated to the King's Lynn Museum in 1958 when its examined by the Geological Survey and its material identified as cement, which would make it a modern object. It could not be identified in the museum's current records suggesting it may have been discarded.
Information from record cards (S19), which have sketches of all four objects.
P. Watkins (HES), 9 August 2018.

1954. Excavation of monastic cemetery. Reported in (S8).

1957. Floor of glazed tiles found.

1960. Stray Find.
Bronze Age Bucket Urn found.
Donated to King's Lynn Museum (KILLM : 1963.27).
Noted in (S14) and described and illustrated in (S15).
The urn is a Middle Bronze Age vessel of the Deverel-Rimbury tradition.
Amended by P. Watkins (HES), 8 August 2018.

1963 of before. Stray Find.
Found at "Abbey Farm Shouldham" (this site?).
Medieval enamelled horse harness stud. See drawing (S4) and sketch (S16).
Donated to the King's Lynn Museum (KILLM : 1963.99).
Amended by P. Watkins (HES), 8 August 2018.

1969. Excavation of medieval tile kiln.

1972. Stray Find.
Found outside scheduled area at [15]:
1 Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged flint arrowhead. See drawing (S20).
One of the finds from Shouldham listed in (S21).
Information from (S14).
Amended by P. Watkins (HES), 9 August 2018.

1973. Excavation.
Excavation by [11] of soakaway for piggery at [12] (Context 1), close to site of Bronze Age urn found in 1960. This work confirmed that this is the site of a Bronze Age cremation cemetery, with five more interments revealed:
Nos 2 to 5 - urnless cremations.
No 6 - Bucket urn containing cremation. Opened by W. Milligan (NCM) in NCM lab and found to contain multiple cremations. See drawings (S12) and (S13). This urn was donated to the Norwich Castle Museum and subsequently passed to the King's Lynn Museum (KILLM : 1977.198).
See published report (S18) for further details. The urn is also described and illustrated in (S15) and (as with the earlier discovery) would now be regarded as an example of the Middle Bronze Age Deverel-Rimbury tradition.
Found nearby:
Deposit of 13th- to 14th-century architectural fragments.
Found at [13]:
Very large prehistoric flint flake with secondary working.
Information from (S14) and (S18).

The earthworks of the priory are complex, water channels and enclosures can clearly be seen from the air photos. The details are the same as the existing earthwork plot. Cropmarks can be detected to the north of the earthworks. These are rectilinear enclosures relating to the priory layout.
