Alternative Title

Description
The natural soil was exposed over a large part of the site. A ditch was cut into natural and was dated to the Romano-British period. Plough soil and indication of cultivation during this period was identified.

A number of features were encountered, including two curved slots and a feature described at time of excavation as a moat, later re-interpreted as a robbed cobble surface. This activity was followed by a deposit of plough soil and the area was again under cultivation. Two large pits or wells were also identified. One of these produced an enamelled cross brooch which dated to the Anglian period. There were two phases of construction which related to the original and the later construction of the cattle market represented by a series of post-holes and large stanchion base pits.
