Excavations took place on a site believed to have been occupied by a substantial, Roman masonry house. The investigation followed the demolition of three 16th century cottages next to the Victoria Inn. The time allowed for excavation was limited to three weeks in January - February, the bulk of the work being undertaken by two paid labourers. A total of five trenches were dug. Discoveries included a tessellated floor, two east-west walls and a gravel courtyard.<1>
