Description

This assessment is concentrated specifically upon below ground archaeology. This assessment of the archaeological potential of the site has indicated that the site may contain features of Roman, medieval and post-medieval/early modern date. This assessment has indicated that the site lies immediately outside the Roman fortress, close to the line of a significant Roman road. However, investigations within the vicinity of the site suggest that any Roman archaeology is likely to be at a depth in excess of 3m and potentially as much as 7m below the current ground level. Early medieval archaeology is also likely to be present, but again located at significant depth. Medieval remains have been recorded in the immediate vicinity close to the modern ground surface, certainly within less than 1m depth and occasionally as shallow as 0.15m. No 28A Colliergate includes a cellar, which will have destroyed much of the street frontage medieval archaeology.
