This is a Molas excavation.
After a few medieval features, the bulk of the archaeology is comprised of
1st C. Roman strip - buildings fronting the Via Decumania running east-west.
On the way down to the Roman levels a late seventeenth century, life sized,
delft-ware imitation-penis drinking vessel with a tasteful blue flower motif
was discovered, as reported in the Times on Valentines Day!
