Medieval finds at site of new Northamptonshire council offices

Posted on by

ARCHAEOLOGISTS have discovered a number of exciting finds in Northampton at the site of brand new council offices.

A team from the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) have excavated a medieval back yard and discovered a bread oven, medieval pottery and a collection of bronze pins.

The dig is taking place in Fetter Street, where a new £43million office building for Northamptonshire County Council will be built.

Andy Chapman, MOLA Archaeologist, said that the project “is providing a rare opportunity to look at the back streets of the medieval town, occupied by rows of small houses or cottages with their backyard plots, and to explore the everyday lives of the average medieval Northamptonian.”

The excavation will continue until August.
