Further evidence for the industrial nature of the northern extra-mural suburb of Canterbury from the Roman, through medieval and post-medieval periods, was discovered in excavations close to North Lane. Roman discoveries include quarries servicing the pottery and tile industry, a series of heavily-used roads and a late Roman road-side burial, possibly a family group. Medieval industrial and commercial activity to the rear of premises on North Lane is evident from the contents of pits and features of the period. A study of medieval plots and later boundaries suggests that the line of the Roman road was preserved in the local topography until relatively recent times.
