The Excavation of Medieval and Post-medieval Remains at Poyle House, Berkshire (Paperback)
Archaeological excavation at the site of Poyle House, a derelict Georgian country house, revealed limited evidence of earlier buildings on the site. These comprised the beamslots of a possible farm range, and structural remains of the north wall of a medieval house. The buildings formed part of the medieval Poyle Manor, and limited artefactual evidence suggests that occupation began during the late 11th or 12th centuries. This short report focuses on the artefactual evidence (pottery, waterlogged wood, building materials, metal objects and worked flint) and environmental remains, dating back as far as the Mesolithic period.
