NO 2871 4455 A watching brief was carried out 29 February – 1 March 2012 during 0.15m deep excavations associated with the extension of an existing path into the yard in front of the museum, to connect it to a ramp to allow disabled access to the building. A single sherd of medieval/post-medieval pottery, with a greenish-yellow glaze, was recovered. The presence of pottery in the backfill of the drain/manhole trench suggests that where sufficient depth can be achieved, intact archaeological horizons may be sealed by the later imported material that was used to level the area.
