Excavations at 198 High Street, Exeter (Exeter archive site 55)

In 1975 the Exeter Museums Archaeological Field Unit undertook excavation within the cellars of 198 High Street. Excavation was by open area method within the total of four small trenches which were available for inspection.

The site was situated at 198 High Street Exeter at SX 9196/9263. The site is within the known area of the former Roman legionary fortress at Exeter.

Pits and other below-ground-surface features of the post-medieval, medieval and Roman civil periods were recorded cutting the deposits of the Roman military period which, at Exeter, is dated from c AD 55/60 - c 75/80. The remains of a water-pipe trench of Roman military date was recorded along with some stake holes.
