Archaeology Notes

NO12SW 103 1188 2365.

A large site between High Street and Mill Street was investigated prior to the construction of the Marks and Spencer Store. One trench sectioned the late thirteenth century town wall (NO12SW 5) and external ditch. Other areas showed respectively, traces of industrial activity associated with the tanning industry the plan of the old Parliament House (NO12SW 47) wattle structures associated with burgages in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, and a stone building of the fourteenth century. Large quantities of artifacts, including textiles, leather, wood, bone, glass and pottery were recovered.
