Description

Archaeological features revealed during reconstruction of 11-13 Midland Bank in 1971. Recorded by Department of Environment. Roman features (two short walls and cobbling) were noted at the northern part of the site with possible Anglo-Scandinavian features in a small adjacent area. In the southern part of the site foundation trenches only penetrated into medieval levels of 12th-14th centuries containing timbers. An inscribed altar was incorporated into the upper layer of the wall. The walls were possibly of half-timber construction. Roman remains had previously been noted on this site in 1835 but did not share alignment with those revealed in 1971. RCHME Microfilm Index PRN: 6088.
