Description

The evaluation involved the excavation and recording of a single trench up to 2.56m BGL. The evaluation revealed Roman deposits between 1.81-2m BGL (13.25-13.71m AOD). Above these deposits were the remains and the subsequent demolition rubble infill of an 18th century wine vault/cellar. Due to the presence of Roman and medieval archaeology recorded in nearby excavations at depths between 14m and 15m AOD, it is highly probable that outside the footprint of the 18th century buildings and cellar the archaeology survives at a higher level than recorded here.
