Ancient medieval buildings found beneath Cathedral Square (UK)





Archaeologists excavating beneath Cathedral Square in Peterborough have found the remains of ancient medieval buildings.

One of the buildings, which probably stood until the 17th Century, may be part of the old Butter Cross – a building in the market place where butter, eggs and meat were sold.

Up to six archaeologists a day have been working on the site for several weeks in preparation for the main square improvement works, which are being delivered by Opportunity Peterborough and Peterborough City Council.
