Alternative Title
1985.5 Pickfords
Description
Natural deposits were encountered approximately 3m below ground level. Overlying a pre-Roman soil deposit were the remains of a 1st century turf and clay rampart based on close set horizontal timbers. Part of the wall of the fortress was located by this excavation. This comprised two phases of wall footing, probably dating to the 2nd and 3rd century. The upstanding wall had been heavily robbed in the Anglo-Scandinavian period.



Levelling of the rampart and pits dating to the 12th/13th century were recorded. A clay surface and rubble deposits in the south-east of the trench were associated with a 16th/17th century building.
