Excavations located a number of Roman buildings and a north-south street. The earliest occupation was Flavian. A timber house of this period was replaced by a 2nd to 3rd century corridor building, and all buildings were demolished by the mid 4th century. However, occupation appears to have continued into the 5th century.
