Several trial-trenches were excavated in a derelict garden between the Tourist Information Office and the Church of Ireland Archbishop's garden by HMBB (DOE (NI)) on behalf of Armagh District Council. The area is to be developed by the District Council as part of an 'Arts and Heritage' complex and the District Council is to be given a report on the archaeological implications of any earthmoving in the area, The down slope edge of a large ditch was found at the upper side of the garden. A few sherds of medieval pottery have been recovered and other features are appearing in subsoil down slope from the ditch. In progress at time of writing.
