Abstract
The Museum of Western Slovakia completed archaeological research in the present area of Trnava townhall. The chapel, situated in the west wing, was the topic of research. Excavations revealed a shaft in the middle of the chapel, divided by a crossbeam in the shape of the letter ”T” at a depth of 116 cm. The outside diameters of the shaft measured 171 × 181 cm, the inside diameters were 125 × 115 cm and the depth was 470 cm. The backfill consisted of brick fragments, ceramic vessels, 30 pieces of silver and copper coins, Gothic beaker fragments, a seal stamp and animal skeletal remains, which were dated to the 15th century. A complete human skeleton of a male individual who died in the age of 20-29 years was excavated at a depth of 280-300 cm. Analysis of the skeletal remains did not confirm violent death of the individual.
