Alternative Title
1972.21 Lloyds Bank, Pavement
Description
Traces of Roman activity were located at the base of one of the excavated trenches.

A series of stratified occupation deposits and timber buildings, dating to the 9th and 10th centuries with superimposed floor and rubbish levels dating from the Anglo-Scandinavian period through to the 11th century. These timber buildings were set parallel or at right angles to the present street, Pavement. Although no complete structures were excavated there was evidence of a series of buildings running back from the street on two adjacent tenements. They appear to have been mainly used for domestic purposes although waste from leather, bone and antler working was recovered.

The upper three meters of deposits were truncated by the cellars of buildings dating to the 18th century.
