Illus. 30. A jumble of at least four burials is present here.

Excavations preceded the construction of an underground Treasury in 1988 by the Dean and Chapter. The excavations revealed archaeological deposits spanning the first and second millennia AD including Roman buildings, burials of Anglo-Scandinavian, medieval and post-medieval date. In addition foundations of the cathedral shed light on its early plan.

Although a partial draft report was produced shortly after the excavation finished, a final report was never published. The report has been brought to publication in two parts. First a print report in The Archaeological Journal (scheduled for 2014) focusing on the Early Medieval period. Second, a series of appendices set out data of Roman, medieval and post-medieval date.
