Chester Archaeological Society Journal

Chester Archaeological Society
Founded in 1849, the Society was first entitled the 'Chester Architectural, Archaeological, and Historic Society', or more fully the 'Architectural, Archaeological and Historic Society for the County, City and Neighbourhood of Chester'.

Defended Small Towns of Roman Britain

Michael Fulford, Alex Smith & Lisa Lodwick
Although the vast majority of the population of Roman Britain continued to live in small rural farmsteads, many larger nucleated settlements developed after the conquest, often sited along the expanding road network. Some of these roadside settlements gained earthwork and/or masonry defences at various points during the mid- to late Roman period, and have often been termed 'defended small towns', although these vary markedly in terms of their scale and in the extent of any...

Land at Oak Lane, Bredon, Worcestershire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-257167).

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in March 2016 at Land at Oak Lane, Bredon, Worcestershire. A total of eight trenches were excavated. Much of the recording was hampered by water ingress into the trenches. The evaluation identified two ditches of broadly Roman date in the west of the site, potentially agricultural in nature. Modern ditches which correspond to field boundaries depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of the area, were...

Wellhead Lane, Perry Barr, Birmingham: Archaeological Excavation

A proposed development at Wellhead Lane Sports ground in Perry Barr, Birmingham (centred on NGR SP 0727 9130) was likely to affect below ground archaeological remains.

Blackwell Grange Solar Farm (OASIS ID: cotswold2-282591)

The evaluation confirmed the results of a geophysical survey, which had identified the extensive remains of an Iron Age or Roman farmstead, with occupation concentrated in the central part of the site. The evaluation demonstrated that the settlement was probably established in the Middle Iron Age at the eastern edge of the site, with the focus of occupation shifting c. 300m to the west and becoming more concentrated in the later Iron Age.
