Description
Excavation revealed evidence of terracing in the 2nd century on which a series of Roman domestic structures culminating in a town house with mosaic floors was constructed. This was succeeded by a timber building to the west and a massive cobble foundation aligned east-west. The construction of the Benedictine Nunnery of St Clement and its associated burials robbed much of the Roman material. After the Dissolution a series of lime kilns was constructed to make use of both Nunnery and Roman building material.
