Hull records 'In August 1927 workmen cutting trenches for Jacklin's new cafe brought into the Museum an astonishing collection of pottery.<1> On visiting the site the trenches were found completed. In a very small area at a depth of 2-4ft lay a remarkable deposit of broken pottery, glass and other wares, almost without admixture of earth, and so loose that fragments fell out in a tinkling shower when touched. No more could be collected, and that recovered is probably not one hundredth part of what remained.'<2>
