Description

The excavation involved the removal of the existing internal stone-slab and concrete floor. Although existing services had truncated archaeological deposits in specific areas, deposits and features were observed within each of the trenches. The most significance feature was a rough limestone rubble wall foundation recorded in the base of a trench. This foundation was aligned north-south and was likely to represent a building predating the early 18th century construction of the debtors' prison.
