A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Two of the most important roads in Roman Britain, Ermine Street and the Fosse Way, met at Lincoln and the city was an important Late Saxon town. By the mid 10th century the city had become the largest of the five boroughs of the East Midlands, a position it retained through the whole mediaeval period. This new series, published in collaboration with the City of Lincoln Archaeology Unit, will publish the substantial archaeological investigations that have taken place over the last three decades, providing an important corpus of information about this fascinating city. Further volumes will be published early next year. The suburb of Wigford lies near the core of the historic city. Before excavations began in 1972, nothing was known of the prehistory of the area, and so the arrival of the Roman army represented the first historic event. This volume publishes the results of excavations of several sites, occasioned by a series of developments. Every excavation varied in the extent and depth of stratigraphy uncovered, and each had a different period emphasis, from the Iron Age to post mediaeval. N° de réf. du libraire AAJ9781842170212

Synopsis :

Two of the most important roads in Roman Britain, Ermine Street and the Fosse Way, met at Lincoln and the city was an important Late Saxon town. By the mid 10th century the city had become the largest of the five boroughs of the East Midlands, a position it retained through the whole mediaeval period. This new series, published in collaboration with the City of Lincoln Archaeology Unit, will publish the substantial archaeological investigations that have taken place over the last three decades, providing an important corpus of information about this fascinating city. Further volumes will be published early next year. The suburb of Wigford lies near the core of the historic city. Before excavations began in 1972, nothing was known of the prehistory of the area, and so the arrival of the Roman army represented the first historic event. This volume publishes the results of excavations of several sites, occasioned by a series of developments. Every excavation varied in the extent and depth of stratigraphy uncovered, and each had a different period emphasis, from the Iron Age to post mediaeval.

Critique:

This volume provides good evidence from the outer part of a major town in the Roman and medieval periods. Much of the key data from here can be absorbed into period and site type syntheses and the best examples (the St Marks church sequence) and good data from contentious periods (final phase Roman and dark earth) may surface in teaching notes and undergraduate essays. Those actively researching and excavating Lincoln will find this invaluable, whilst those of us researching urban forms and functions will welcome, note, absorb and occasionally utilize.'--Paul Spoerry "Antiquity, Vol. 76, 2002 "

It is a useful synthesis of reports on many early excavations in an important part of the City of Lincoln;'--Mark Redknap "Post-Medieval Archaeology, 2003 "

Clearly it is intended to be a definitive publication for researchers and it is certainly the key to the archive, from which any future non-excavational research is likely to be derived and from which some useful prediction of ground conditions on future sites can be made, for planning purposes. As such it needed to be done, and certainly represents value for money.'--Andrew White "Lincolnshire History and Archaeology, 2001 "
