The main area of excavation is shown in the plan which shows the areas between Fish Street Hill and Botolph Lane, fronting on to Lower Thames Street as it then was.
In particular, the excavations at Peninsular House, carried out in 1979 (PEN79), produced excellent evidence of structures, including postholes, beam slots and hearths.
Owing to the fact that the modern streets overlay the Late Saxon streets, it was not possible to excavate the Saxon street surfaces. However, it was possible to observe the street metalling in section, revealing the earliest phases of Botolph Lane.
