It is 5m (16ft) deep in places and was found using aerial, laser scanning equipment to map the land’s contours.
It runs from Aubrey Street to the River Wye via King Street and may have marked the limit of the king’s jurisdiction.
Site archaeologists said Norman settlements inside the ditch probably fell under the king’s jurisdiction and tax district, while land outside of the ditch beside Hereford Cathedral belonged to the bishop.
