Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken on renovations and alterations inside the church Much disarticulated human bone was found inside the church, as well as the partial remains of 11 skeletons. (Where possible, the skeletons were left in situ; all bones found inside the church were reburied inside the church.) A number of architectural stones were found, including pieces of black limestone ('Tournai marble'), as well as medieval pottery, glass, animal bone, nails and a Neolithic flint blade. Foundation scarcements for the N and S walls of the nave and choir survived as well as foundation plinths for the pillars of the N and S arcades of the choir. Outside the church, in the former graveyard, more disturbed human bones and the partial remains of 16 skeletons were found. The graveyard was found to extend at least as far W as the pavement outside the City Hall and as far N as the entrance to Kirkgate, where it had been extended over the medieval midden of the burgh. On the W side of the church, remains of the W and E walls of the Meal Market were found, as well as of two walls that were cut into the graveyard near the church. On the N side of the church, a former cellar/boiler room for the East Church was revealed as well as a double chamfered scarcement for the N wall of the choir, on one stone of which was a mason's mark.
