Title: The Walnuts, Oundle Road, Woodston, Peterborough: Charred Plant Remains from a Medieval Village
Authors: Monckton, Angela

Presented at: University of Leicester
Abstract: During excavations by ULAS directed by Steve Jones sampling was carried out to recover charred plant remains which can provide evidence of agriculture, diet, and activities of the people in the past. The features excavated included medieval pits, gullies, drains and a possible pond. Two pits of prehistoric date were also investigated. Information from charred plants is now accumulating from villages and towns in the region and it was hoped that these remains would add this evidence. The site is near the church in the old village of Woodston about one mile from Peterborough on the main road and was known to be a stopping place for merchants. [Taken from introduction]
