Excavations in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, 1977 and 1986-1988

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A collection of academic reports on the 1977 and 1986-1988 archaeological excavations in Trowbridge. Excavations in advance of a major development produced evidence for Bronze Age, Iron Age and Romano-British fields and boundaries. A late eleventh century stone church surrounded by a bounded cemetery containing at least 160 inhumations was found. The area seems to have been incorporated into a manorial enclosure system with timber buildings, which was destroyed c.1139 by the construction of an Anarchy Period castle. The church was subsequently adapted for secular use before being demolished in the sixteenth century. No other castle buildings were identified.

Condition: Cover slightly bumped and shelfworn. Microfiche intact in back cover pocket. Pages clean and binding tight.
