Meyknecht- van den Berg Summary In 1981 during the construction of new sewerage a small excavation could be carried out in the Breestraat near the town hall of Leiden on the highest spot in the town center. It showed that the height difference of with the surroundings was caused by intentional heightening with clay sods followed by accumalation of dung and rubbish layers. These mediaeval layers were covered bij a sand layer. The mediaeval layers date from the first half of the 12th century to well into the 13th century. Potterygroups from these layers showed littlechange in typology. The relative quantity of the distinguished potterygroups however changes considerably through time. In the dung and rubbish layers the foundation of a building, probably dating to the first half of the 12th century, was found under the present street. Evidence was collected that at the end of that century a wood covered street formed the predecessor of the present Breestraat. It is presumed that many of the inhabitants in the 12th and probably first half of the 13th century were farmers. The finds show further that leatherwork and possibly also bonework were manufactured in Leiden. drs. D.P. Hallewas R.O.B Kleine Haag 2 3811 EH AMERSFOORT
