Excavations at Friars' Gate, Exeter, 1973-74 (Exeter archive site 45)

Excavation took place at Friars' Gate just outside the south gate of the Roman town in advance of road-widening: timber-framed buildings of military type were found.

Work at Friars' Gate also involved excavating a substantial post-medieval structure of uncertain use. A trench, 10.4 metres long, 1.4 metres wide and 1.1 metres deep was partly revetted with stone and brick.

Excavation at the junction of Holloway Street and Friars' Gate revealed the robbed remains of a substantial masonry building with six burials, probably the east end of the Franciscan friary.
