Archaeological excavations adjacent to The Abbey, Swaffham Bulbeck revealed a paved surface, a substantial wall foundation and a possible buttress. The wall is not in an exact alignment with the existing building (being 2m to the north) but parallel to it. The floor levels are broadly similar suggesting they may be roughly contemporary. Stone roof tiles and painted window glass were recovered immediately above the floor.

Residual Roman pottery and a coin were found in the deposit abutting the southern surface of the wall and underlying the floor.
