This remarkable aerial photograph shows the Buttermarket site during archaeological investigations in 1986. The Cornhill is at top left with the Old Cattle Market bus station at the lower right. It is interesting to see several buildings (later demolished) still standing on the north side of Dogs Head Street and Falcon Street. The trenches and test-pits are extensive to the east of the site, adjacent to St Stephens Lane at this time.
