  • Full Description

    <1/2> Evaluation in 1996 identified a large feature in the north of the site, from which medieval material was recovered. This is likely to have been the medieval town ditch of Doncaster, known to have occupied this approximate area. In the south of the site, household waste may have been discarded along the margin of the ditch. Finds from the site included a bone pin, green glazed pottery, and bone.

    <3> A large Medieval ditch [see PIN00422/04], running parallel to Printing Office Street, was also identified to the west during evaluation in 1992, on land off Cleveland Street - this is likely to be a continuation of this feature.
