Abstract


Excavation in the transept of St Nicholas' Church suggests that the original building dates from 1153-57 and not, as previously claimed, to 11th century. Evidence for medieval modifications is described, and there is an architectural and an archaeological account of the pre- and post-Reformation features of the building. The archaeology of the church is shown to have a bearing on the history and growth of the medieval city. R K M
