Description
The earliest activity on the site took the form of Roman timber buildings, replaced by stone buildings, and also a late Roman cemetery.

No activity is recorded after the 4th century until the late 9th century when rubbish disposal and post and wattle boundary fences suggest occupation close to the site. In the later 9th/early 10th century these boundaries are realigned, possibly indicating, Coppergate, with street fronting properties, had been laid out in this period. Four post and wattle buildings fronting the street become distinguishable, and evidence of iron working and other trades on a commercial scale are recorded. Dumping on the Coppergate street frontage occurs in the late 10th century in connection with the erection, within the same boundary lines of sunken featured structures; sometimes in two rows and behind the street frontage.

Modern truncation has rendered evidence for 11th century and later buildings on the street front, but the area to the rear is increasingly built up with phases of structural activity and dumped deposits.
