Abstract

A trench dug along the length of the graveyard extension revealed evidence of the Norman and medieval abbey and of earlier, Anglo-Saxon occupation. the medieval abbey remains were considerable, consisting of large robber trenches, mortar floors and remains of domestic structures. Anglo-Saxon deposits were revealed beneath the abbey buildings, with 6-9th century pottery. There was little ceramic evidence for the late Saxon and Norman period but very little of the earlier abbey levels was excavated.
