Introduction

The Hertfordshire Extensive Urban Survey project began in 1997, as part of the national EUS programme instigated and funded by English Heritage. It was carried out by Hertfordshire County Council's Archaeology Section (now the Historic Environment Unit). All the places surveyed were either urban districts by 1900, or had urban characteristics in the past. The total number of these urban places is 25. They range from the Roman roadside settlement of Cow Roast, which has no medieval or later successor, through a failed Saxon borough at Ashwell, to the market town of Hemel Hempstead founded by Henry VIII. St Albans is not included, as it was the subject of a more intensive Urban Archaeological Assessment under a different English Heritage programme.
