Archaeological excavations associated with the preservation work for the Church and the Long Barrack continued in two units this week. The excavation units were located inside and just outside of the Long Barrack.
After meeting with the historic architects and preservation team, it was decided that a small section of an excavation unit located inside the southern room of the Long Barrack should be re-opened. This was done to better understand the base of the foundation that had been previously encountered. In addition, there were certain questions concerning the features encountered in the unit placed on the exterior of the southern portion of the Long Barrack arcade wall that prompted further excavations.
