Description

WATCHING BRIEF A watching brief was undertaken on the conversion of a garage and the removal of a hard-standing area. The site lies in the Area of Archaeological Importance (AAI), and due to the close proximity of the Minster and its position within the Roman town it was felt information could be gained regarding site topography. The work resulted in the recovery of over 50 architectural fragments dating from the 12th to the 15th century, and the discovery of a small, vaulted 18th century cellar.
