The Roman tessellated pavement, perfectly preserved in the Undercroft, is the floor of a domestic house from the late 2nd Century. Consisting of plain red tesserae, it has a gully in it thought to be the position of a wall, showing plaster at the edges.
It is cut across by the foundation of the east wall of the original Saxon church, and (so far) no trace of an edge or enclosing wall of the same date has been found.
