The remains of a building thought to have been built in the 11th or 12th Century have been uncovered by archaeologists in Jedburgh.
The site, opposite Mary Queen of Scots House, has been earmarked for building accommodation on.
The discovery of what appears to be a house with a fireplace, and artefacts, means the planning for flats is to be reconsidered with the remains kept accessible.
Archaeologists are working to identify exactly what period the remains are from. Meanwhile, they have been covered up for protection.
