Full Description

Excavation at 127 and 131 Lawrence St encountered a broad band of layered gravel and cobbles interpreted as the remains of Road 2 and later successors. The stratigraphically early layers of the road consisted of ordered cobbles within clean pea grit and sand, which were interpreted as those of Road 2, being over 7.5m wide with a postulated northern flanking ditch.
