Jarrow Priory, Roman ceramic artifacts
During excavations by R.J. Cramp (1963-78) at the Anglo-Saxon priory "six sherds of Roman pottery were discovered in what appear to be Saxon levels", and "huts or shelters with clay floors were discovered in the western section of the cutting. In one of these was a deposit of Roman tegulae and imbrices and their chippings, which had been used presumably in the making of opus signinum flooring...".
