MEDIEVAL building foundations, a Tudor kiln and silver coins are among items that have been unearthed at a development site in the city centre.

Developers discovered the objects on the site of the old bus station in Endless Street, which Churchill Retirement Living is turning into retirement homes.

A Tudor kiln was discovered, that was most likely used for pottery or tile production, as well as a 16th century well and the foundations of medieval buildings.

Smaller objects such as silver coins, and what appears to be a clasp/pin made of polished bone were also discovered.

Cotswold Archaelogy have been excavating the site in different phases since March of this year, and say that their findings link in with what we already know about Salisbury's history from previous excavations.

Ray Kennedy, for Cotswold Archaeology, said: "Firstly we want to thank Churchill Retirement Living for the opportunity to shed light on Salisbury's past.

"It is a rare opportunity to conduct an excavation across a full chequer in this medieval city.

"We have got evidence of medieval phases of occupation from the foundation of Salisbury up to the Victorian period.

"It was a nice surprise that so much of what we found has survived, considering all of the development on the site that's gone on in the modern period."
