This little booklet contains a selection of over forty old photographs, with supporting text, from the 1906-1914 excavations of the Roman site at Corbridge, Northumberland. Leonard Woolley, who helped supervise the excavations, complained that `I had never studied archaeological methods even from books (there were none at the time dealing with the subject), and I had not any idea of how to make a survey or a groundplan'! Offers a fascinating insight into archaeological techniques and discoveries early in the century. Also a valuable source of unpublished information for those interested in the site.
