archaeological site


Two mosaic floors found during the nineteenth century. Excavations in 1971 at 7 Abbey Green uncovered a spread of gravel sealing a layer of dark mud, suggesting some sort of hard standing; it was covered by further layers of soil and silt. In 1984-5, further excavations at the corner of Abbeygate Street and Swallow Street exposed extensive deposits of dark mud, suggesting that the first and second centuries were largely unoccupied. There is evidence of alterations including internal partitions, a large hypocaust, and the raising of some of the floor levels in the fourth century.
