Two archaeological watching briefs were held on the excavation of two pipe trenches in connection with the rebuilding of the Mercury Flats residential block. These revealed a number of Roman wall lines, floors and gravel surfaces. Later, the site of the lift-shaft pit for the new Mercury Flats building was hand-excavated. A Roman wall foundation and a gravel surface were identified. Finds included a significant quantity of late Roman pottery. <1>
