Summary. A single evaluation trench was excavated across the footprint of a proposed new art-block building. The aim of the evaluation was to establish the nature and condition of any archaeological remains, and to assess how any remains would be affected by the construction of the new building. The trench was excavated to natural subsoil. One linear feature was identified, probably a Roman boundary ditch.
