Guildford Museum Excavation Unit

Westbury House, Guildford

Salvage excavation early in the year by Julia Arthur for Guildford Museum located walls shown on the 1739 plan. Later excavation recovered much medieval pottery, a substantial proportion being Saxo-Norman, some medieval building material, two hearths and a probable wall, six largely complete and articulated animal skeletons and a dumbbell-shaped limekiln (probably 12th century).

196 High Street, Guildford

Reported by M J Alexander that redevelopment and refurbishment had revealed a 15th century crown post roof and evidence suggesting that the building had been designed from the first as a: shop. A 13th century pit (or pits) was partially excavated behind the building by Julia Arthur.
