West Hope Deserted Medieval Village Project Site Summary: A fieldwalked assemblage of material from several adjacent fields in the West Hope area of the Corve Dale, South Shropshire. The site has been classified as a deserted or heavily shrunken medieval village based on the high percentage of domestic pottery vessels (especially cooking pots) which date from the late 12th - 14th centuries (AD1150 - c.1350) Overview Five rim sherds of local earthenware pottery most probably from similar thin walled domestic vessels. The sherds are undiagnostic and therefore due to their size the si…
