Almost a decade of historical and archaeological research on this medieval two-tier complex of shops is detailed in this report. This inter-disciplinary research project combined archaeological, historical and documentary evidence, with detailed analysis of the topography and history of the early medieval buildings, building materials and techniques. Their remarkable survival to the present day is also a subject of discussion.
