During the demolition of the White Friars Tower in December, 1843, Amor Spoor found underneath it an old stream bed in which were Roman roofing tiles, bricks, pottery, coins and an altar to Silvanus. Another altar was found subsequently. As only one altar survives the identification of the other artifacts cannot be confirmed.
