Abstract

Between 31st January and 2nd February 2011, Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation at 1 High Street, Girton. This evaluation produced evidence of medieval occupation of the site, in the form of postholes and ditches. Later medieval activity, in the form of cobbled surfaces, overlayed the medieval features. Pottery of 12th to 16th century date, along with animal bone and horseshoe fragments were recovered. In addition a large assemblage of medieval worked stone objects was recovered, including 17 lava quern fragments, a possible lava millstone, a re-used basalt quern fragment, 2 schist hones and two stone roof tile fragments.
