Abstract

The western part of Area 5 contains Iron Age settlement features including storage pits. Occupation continued into the Roman period when part of the area was used for an inhumation cemetery. North and south of the cemetery occupation appears to have continued throughout the Roman period.
Area 5 lies within the area occupied by the abbey and overlies the western part of the extensive lay cemetery which was the principle cemetery for the medieval town. The area could contain part of the 7th century monastery which holds a position of prime importance in the history of English church.
