Pre-Roman and Roman Winchester. Part 2, The Roman Cemetery at Lankhills

£30.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Outside the north gate of Venta Belgarum , Roman Winchester, a great cemetery stretched for 500 yards along the road to Cirencester. Excavations at Lankhills from 1967 to 1972 uncovered 451 graves, many elaborately furnished, at the northern limits of this cemetery, and dating from the fourth century A.D.
This book, the second in a two-part study of Venta Belgarum, which forms the third volume of Winchester Studies, describes the excavations of these burials and analyses in detail both the graves and their contents - perhaps the richest single group of fourth century objects yet found in Britain. There are detailed studies and important re-assessments of many categories of object, but it is the information about late Roman burial, religion, and society which is of special interest. Illustrated with numerous line drawings and fold-out sections, plus a section of black and white photographs at the end. First Edition 1979.

Large format hardback, dark blue cloth boards have minor marks and little wear; interior is unmarked, former owner signature on front end paper.
