Summary. Observations were made during groundworks for an extension to St Botolph's Church. Disturbance due to the Britannia Engineering Works and other works was recorded down to a depth of at least 1m. Apart from a small amount of residual Roman pottery which was retrieved from the spoil heaps, nothing of archaeological significance was recorded. This investigation and the previous evaluation and watching brief suggest that archaeological remains may be deeply buried on the site, at over 1m below ground-level.
