Description:
The site was excavated in 1977/8 by an extra mural student group from the University of Liverpool under the direction of P J Davey. Pipe kiln materialhad been observed in the ploughsoil. This proved to belong to a mid seventeenth century dump of tobacco pipes and associated kiln debris. The date ascribed by the excavator is 1630 to 1650. The overlying soils contained some later pipe kiln material. The entire assemblage is recorded in this catalogue regardless of stratigraphy. All fabrics except Type 9 are represented in the stratified material. The unstratified objects formed from fabric Type 9 are all consistent with a late eighteenth or nineteenth century date. The site is fully reported in the BAR British Series 100 (Davey et al 1982, 189-251).
