Excavations at Goldsmith Street, Exeter 1971-72 (Exeter archive site 39)

From August 1971 to May 1972 the Exeter Museums Archaeological Field Unit undertook excavation on a large plot of land between Goldsmith Street and Pancras Lane. This plot was designated for development as part of the Guildhall Shopping Centre.

Remains of the post-medieval, the medieval and the Roman civil periods were recorded overlying deposits of the Roman military period which, at Exeter, is dated from c AD 55/60 - c 75/80. Damage to the Roman military deposits caused by pits of medieval and post-medieval date was quite severe.

This dataset includes material from after the second season of excavation, information regarding the first season can be found at 'Excavations at Goldmith Street, Exeter 1971 (Exeter archive site 37)'
