Text A. Barber excavated ten trenches across the development area, revealing evidence for activity from the 12th/13th centuries onwards. Situated behind the Redcliff Street frontage in the W. half of the development area, findings included possible medieval hearths, walls and floor surfaces. The evaluation also identified the post-medieval line of the Law Ditch, an originally medieval feature that runs N.-S. through the centre of the development area, and demarcates the boundary to the rear of plots fronting Redcliff Street to the west, and St Thomas Street to the east. To the east of the Law Ditch, medieval wall footings and possible garden soils of both medieval and post-medieval date were identified in an area that would have been to the rear of plots fronting St Thomas Street.
