Excavations in 1973 and 1974 uncovered buildings associated with the Benedictine priory, including monastic living quarters and a 13th-century house as well as evidence from the Roman settlement, including cremation burials. The excavations help explain the topography and layout of the town, with its stone castle established in 1066 by the Normans and the gates and town walls. View more info
