Trethurgy: Excavations at Trethurgy Round, St Austell: Community and Status in Roman and Post-Roman Cornwall

£24.99

Product description

How did people in South West Britain respond to the impact of Rome? How were the identities of indigenous British communities affected? What did the end of Roman rule mean for Cornwall? These are amongst the searching questions explored in this report on the 1973 excavations at Trethurgy Round.

The site is an excellent example of a round, a type of small enclosed settlement of considerable status prevalent in Cornwall from the Later Iron Age until the early Post-Roman period. Trethurgy remains the only round whose interior has been entirely excavated, showing continuity in distinctive architecture and material culture from the mid-2nd to the 6th centuries AD. The former was characterised by large oval houses, the latter by gabbroic pottery and a range of stone bowls and mortars. Post-Roman imported ceramics and glass were present in the later stages.

This important publication provides up to date commentary on life and societies in Cornwall during the Roman period and is essential reading for everyone with an interest in Cornish archaeology and the regional character of Roman Britain
