Between 1995 and 2003, archaeological investigations were undertaken in advance of redevelopment at 77-79 Penny Street (SD 4773 6158; LUAU 1996), 81 Penny Street (SD 4773 6158; OA North 2003a) and the former Streamline Garage site on King Street (SD 4765 6135; LUAU 2000), in the centre of the historic city of Lancaster (Fig 1). The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU), which has become Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) by the time the 81 Penny Street site was investigated in 2003. The most significant results of this work was the discovery of a number of Romano-British burials, although limited evidence for the other Romano-British occupation, and for medieval activity, was also recovered in some areas. The burials seemingly formed part of a cemetery south of, and associated with, the civil settlement that developed east of the Roman fort on Castle Hill.
