TVAS News: Remains of a Farmhouse at Eysey Manor, Gloucesetershire

Archaeologists from Thames Valley Archaeological Services have excavated the remains of a farmhouse at Eysey Manor in Gloucestershire. Historic maps date the main farmhouse and associated outbuildings and yards date to at least the 1880s, with the site falling out of usage around the 1950s. The quantity of material recovered from the site was vast and ranged from coins (the earliest of which was a Dutch ‘Duit’ dating to 1709) to articulated animal skeletons, farm equipment, pottery and an array of condiment containers!
