Between the 12th and 15th of July 2017 Oxford Archaeology East carried out a small excavation in advance of a proposed extension at the mid-19th century St Michael's Lower School in St Albans, Hertfordshire. The site lies less than 50m from the north-east wall of Verulamium, a major Roman municipal town, which is designated a Scheduled Ancient Monument. A notable discovery was a flint wall foundation and associated layers that may have been part of an extra-mural Roman building established close to the Roman road to Colchester. Later activity was represented by a medieval pit along with post-medieval to modern demolition and construction levels and a path, presumably related to The Bell Inn and a malting that previously stood on or close to the site.
