Archaeology Notes

Observation of two small pits dug during the construction of an extension in the car park to the rear of the Art Gallery and Museum produced no medieval levels. There was a great deal of modern disturbance with apparently natural sand and gravel some 300mm below

the tarmac surface.

J Stones 1982.
