Abstract/Summary

The charcoal analysed for a middle–late Bronze Age (1150 cal. BC.) unurned cremation burial; and a medieval hearth excavated at Queen's Road both indicate access to and exploitation of a wide range of woody types for funerary and domestic use (13 taxa for the latter). Analysis of waterlogged wood for Saxo-Norman well 5433 included several pieces of a finely finished wooden bowl made of ash (Fraxinus excelsior), dated to AD890–1030.
