The Waithe Valley Through Time (Paperback)
1. The Archaeology of the Valley and Excavation and Survey in the Hatcliffe Area
This volume examines the archaeology of the Waithe Valley as it passes through the central Lincolnshire Wolds. It concentrates on fieldwork and finds from the eastern edge of the Wolds and was undertaken as part of the Central Lincolnshire Wolds Research Project. It documents the development of human presence in and use of the valley from prehistory to recent times, reporting on geophysical survey, fieldwalking and excavations.
The monograph focusses on the evidence for a late Roman settlement, field system and enclosures. Evidence of corn-drying ovens and faunal remains reflect agricultural regimes and the various finds assemblages recovered provide an understanding of the landscape and economy of a later Roman farming complex.
