Description

EXCAVATION Excavations in advance of proposed construction of car park. Earlier deposits were disturbed by the 19th century instrument factory whose foundations cut all levels. In the latter part of the Roman period two ranges of buildings occupied the south-western half of the site. No structures could be assigned to the Anglian or Anglo-Scandinavian period. One pit of many found on site was dated to the AS period.
