Abstract :
Reports that a number of features, probably associated with the urban expansion of the 13th c., were sealed by a 14th to 15th-c. horizon. The posts of medieval timber buildings were identified and there is evidence for refurbishment and perhaps rebuilding of some timber structures on the site. Building in stone was obviously a post-medieval development in Penrith, perhaps reflecting the enhanced prosperity of the town from the later 17th c. onwards. Finds dating from the earlier post-medieval period were limited, but included glass, a small sample of clay tobacco pipes and 454 sherds of pottery. A further 342 sherds of medieval pottery were found. ;
