Abstract:
A three week excavation carried out between the 5th and 25th of October 2005 revealed significant Roman deposits relating to the Roman suburbs of Carlisle that ran alongside present day Botchergate. The fieldwork revealed five distinct phases of Roman activity, that appeared to relate to a minor lane running off Roman Botchergate, the main southern route into Roman Carlisle. The occupation evidence consisted of a series of ephemeral timber building, trackways and boundary ditches dating from the early 2nd century into the late 3rd century. This occupation was universally on a low level of intensity and of low social status. It is likely that the main focus of activity would have been much closer to the present Botchergate street frontage, to the north, and to the projected lane leading off Botchergate to the west beneath the site of Christ's Church. No prehistoric remains were recorded on the site, with very little evidence for medieval activity apart from a single pit containing pottery of 13th /14th date.
