The excavations undertaken prior to construction of an access shaft at Stepney Green proved a significant archaeological dig.  A 35-strong team studied the sites and recovered hundreds of objects, painting a fascinating story of the area’s changing fortunes over 500 years.

Excavation of a disturbed well located at the west end of Garden Close uncovered the largest single group of pottery from the site, with 136 sherds from 41 vessels.  As a whole, the finds comprised a range of forms used for serving and consuming food and drink, with sherds from nine bowls, a dish, two jugs, a tea bowl, a cup, a coffee can, four saucers and seven plates.

Amongst those finds was this Pearlware transfer-printed bowl, showing a landscape scene near Delhi with temples and a girl with a buffalo.  This was probably made by John Rodgers and Sons between 1784 and 1815.
