                       A natural fissure was discovered when excavating. This fissure seems to have damaged a man made cut in the bedrock which was then filled with soil and stones. In this fill we found medieval pottery sherds, both cooking pot and glazed table ware. The table ware sherds appear very similar to the pottery found recently at Skegby. Also found in this fill was a socketed iron arrow head.

                 Five post holes cut into the bedrock are visible in this trench. No dating evidence was found in any of these cuts, though a single piece of waste flint was discovered in one.

Romano-British pottery continues to be found, along with smaller numbers of medieval pottery sherds.

TRENCH 11 Extension 1.

      This photograph shows the edge of the bedrock sloping down into a broad gull camber filled with post-glacially deposited orange sandy silt. Notice the cut of the post hole on the sloping  edge of the bedrock. Among the Romano-British pottery finds in this trench was a rim/shoulder sherd of a very sturdy greyware vessel.

Trench 15


North wall of chapel exposed with the backfill of the 1974 excavation removed.

Also visible is part of the demolition rubble which was left dumped alongside both the north and west walls when the best stone was taken from the chapel. This probably  took place during the 15th Century. ...

Trench 15


This view shows part of the demolition rubble still remaining above the bed rock, with the excavated tail of rubble showing in the trench edge section. In the soil beneath the rubble only Romano British pottery was found, thus demonstrating an early date for the demolition of the chapel.

  The edge of the bed rock is sloping down into the gull camber which is filled with post-glacially deposited sandy soil. The opposite side of this gull camber was seen in Trench 14.

The Excavation Report of Moorhaigh farm is now available.
