Vicars Court Project

Vicar’s Court dig … is it a wall?

Week commencing October 22nd 2018… we begin excavation of test pits in Vicar’ Court no 2, trying to locate a Roman tesserae surface reportedly found in the 19thC.  The pit locations were guided by ground penetrating radar images.

A wall emerges, not what was expected.

Meanwhile, back at the Old Courthouse a team is busy washing and cleaning the finds.  Roman pot sherds and medieval ceramics begin to emerge from the dirt along with some tessera, tegula and bone fragments.
