ISBN 1 872414 32 X
The volume contains reports on 73 sites investigated in and around the St Mary's area between 1946 and 1983: 37 of these having been archaeological excavations, and only one of them previously the subject of a detailed site report. It presents the first broad synthesis of the evidence to appear since the beginning of large and long-term excavations.
The Melbourne Street sites (SOUs 1, 4, 6, and 20) dispose of at least five of the seven criteria and might usefully have been reassessed in the light of the new evidence that has been accumulated since excavation reports were published in 1980. Further information about the street found at SOU 4 is included, and SOU 20's burials with grave goods are looked at again. However, there proves to be little value in describing more fully the nature of the layers infilling the pits or the dating evidence they contained: by and large, neither type of information is unusual, and the main dating evidence is anyway to be found in the volume just published on the coins and pottery of Hamwic.
The reports included here are based on a study of the original site records and the finds, all of which are held by AHMS. Researchers wishing to gain access to the documentary or material archive should appply in writing to The Principal Officer, Archaeology and Heritage Management Section, Tower House, Town Quay, Southampton SO1 lLX, England.
