Type and Period (1)
A small trench was excavated on the frontage of Trinity Street to examine the post-Roman occupation. The earliest post-Roman pottery found was C11. The N-S Roman street was seen in the sides of some of the developers stanchion holes. No buildings were visible under the street and it is therefore almost certain that the earliest surface was military, flanking the western ends of the military building found earlier at Lion Walk (see ). <1> <2> Excavation and later watching brief showed that in C3-C4 the site was occupied by at least one house. <3>
