Summary. An emergency archaeological recording was carried out in a service trench on the north pavement of Napier Road, 2-3m away from the remains of the inner cavea wall foundation of the Roman circus. Four layers and one feature were observed in section, the feature possibly being related to the demolition and robbing of circus material during the early Medieval period.
