Type and Period (1)
On the central area of the site was Part of the wall foundation (F32) of a building, probably of late Roman date, was defined in the central part of the excavation area. This feature was uncovered during machine-clearing around the medieval wall foundation F17 which sealed it. The foundation F32 consisted of a shallow trench which contained unmortared lumps of septaria and occasional pieces of yellow-brown mortar. Immediately to the east side of the foundation F32, there was a small feature (F23) that consisted of unmortared septaria lumps with some ragstone pieces. Although only a very small area of this feature remained, it was similar to F32 and its shape suggests a linear feature set at right-angles to F32. It appears F32 and probably F23 represent wall foundations of a late Roman building on the south side of the Roman street. <1>
