The report on the excavations at Carlisle Cathedral in 1988 is laid out in two parts. First, the article in The Archaeological Journal (McCarthy forthcoming 2014) focuses on the circumstances of the excavation, the stratigraphy, metal and other finds attributed to the post-Roman/pre-Norman centuries, radiocarbon dates and summaries of the osteological and isotopic data. Included in this is a summary of programmes of geophysical survey undertaken more recently and relevant to the principal findings.

Second, the present digital report includes catalogues of much of the remaining artefactual data, and sets out the human remains and isotopic data in more detail. The material reported is Roman, medieval or post-medieval in date. For ease of use, each file within the digital report has its own bibliography.
