The excavtions provided an opportunity to investigate medieval defences on eastern side of town which are first mentined in 1107. Today the proposed line of the wall is represented by a property boundary running parallel to Boutport Street. A shallow robber trench was found along the line of this boundary. A geophysical survey located the town ditch about 10m outside the wall. Upon excavation it proved to be V-shaped, about 4.0 metres wide and 1.75 metres deep.
