Excavation at Friars' Walk, Exeter 1973 (Exeter archive site 46)

From May until June 1973, excavations took place on a plot of land fronting onto Friars' Walk which was due for redevelopment. The site was excavated by Exeter Museums Archaeological Field Unit.

Remains of the post-medieval, medieval and Roman civil periods were recorded overlying features of the Roman military period which, at Exeter, is dated from c AD 55/60 - c 75/80. Roman military features were first encountered at about 27.3 metres above Ordnance Datum. Only five features of suspected Roman military date were found, four of which were pits and one a well.
