B and D, as the rod-handled jug D66. Also a
small Surrey bottle, of fine fabric, D61 (D), as at Netherne.
North France (Rouen, etc.). Imitations,
but only a few abraded scraps from B that seem to be of this
fabric, common on English port-sites.
West France (Saintonge) (Fig. 24). All
from D. Polychrome: ten sherds from at least three jugs, more
baluster-shaped than usual, as D64. Pine white ware with
decoration in purple, green (including part of a bird?), and
yellow (including part of a shield), and plain strap handle.
This, apart from the sum-total of coarse ware rim-profiles, is
the most diagnostic element in D.65 Monochrome:
similar ware, two wall-sherds, with mottled green glaze.
Low Countries (Andenne Type). One sherd
from A; white ware with grooves and thick yellow glaze.56
Low Countries (Holland or Flanders). Top
of small, brick-red baluster D63.
iv. Phase K
A fair quantity in all, but nothing
reconstructible. It includes large, cylindrical stoneware
beer-mugs, usually pale, treacly-glazed coarsewares, perhaps
Wealden, a little white earthenware, but nothing approaching
porcelain, and black Basaltes, fluted, which sometimes occurs
in plebeian contexts.
The description of pottery relies heavily on the
careful analysis of D. C. Mynard and the advice of J. G. Hurst
and Dr. G. C. Dunning.
VIII. Animal Bones
Meat-bones have not been examined, but bones of
small mammals were found sealed and in perfect condition in
the post-fire floor-raising in the porch-tower and examined by
W. G. Teagle, F.Z.S. They included the lower jaw and part of
skull of a water-shrew (Neomys fodiens) and jaws of a
long-tailed field-mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus).
