Abstract:
An archaeological observation was carried out in July 1994 of foundation and service trenches for a new rectory and garage to the west of The Rectory, Butter Street. A previous evaluation had revealed pits, ditches and layers consistent with the area lying within the Roman urban area, along with possible evidence for the 2nd century defences. The observation recorded two walls, possibly from one but more likely from two separate structures, both of Roman date. Both walls ran NE-SW, thus respecting the line of the Roman defences, and may have fronted on a suspected road to the west which was not uncovered by the excavations. Both walls were overlain by garden soils containing post-medieval material.[AIP]
