Description

Nine boreholes observed and three trenches excavated as an evaluation. The evaluation borehole transect indicated a complex sequence of well stratified deposition up to 7m deep was present, dating from Roman to the modern period. The excavation of three 3 x 3m trenches located well-preserved medieval structural remains with only slight modern disturbance. Edge-set tile hearths were found close to the Skeldergate street frontage with a massive limestone wall founded on a raft of large timbers aligned at right angles to the street closer to the river.
