The objectives of the evaluation were to confirm the Roman to 13th century sequence revealed by a 1980 excavation within the Minster Library was relevant to this part of the site and to support a revised archaeological mitigation strategy. The evaluation consisted of a single trench 2.2m square and 3m deep. The evaluation revealed four successive road surfaces (via quintana) dating from the first to fourth centuries.
