West Mersea 2006 Pottery Report

West Mersea 2006 Test Pit Location Map

Six test pits were dug in West Mersea in 2006, which produced no Anglo-Saxon material and a total of just five small sherds of pre-1400 AD medieval pottery. Further excavation in 2007 will seek to examine whether this dearth of Anglo-Saxon and medieval material is replicated elsewhere in West Mersea. In contrast, five of the excavated pits (the exception being WME06/4) contained pottery of mid 16th- late 18th century date.
