Four small test pits were hand excavated on ground just to the west of the cloister at Rochester Cathedral. The eastern two pits revealed an ashy mortar and chalk layer at 450-500mm below the current ground surface. This layer is provisionally interpreted as the top of demolition deposits from the medieval west range of the cloister, which was demolished at the beginning of the 19th century.
