Daniel Defoe manuscripts discovered in pub?

While Stockwell Arms, in Colchester’s Dutch Quarter was being renovated the builders discovered some manuscripts written with a quill pen under the floorboards of the 14th century pub:

"Mr Morgan is sending the fragmented manuscripts off to a museum to be assessed by experts, because he believes they may have been written by Robinson Crusoe author, Daniel Defoe, who is rumoured to have lived there in the 1700s."
