Abstract
Simon Denison
8 - 9
Summarises the findings of a recent survey which examined the use and abuse of metal detectors on archaeological sites (see 95/850).
Richard Morris
Highlights the relative cost-effectiveness of air photographic survey over other activities such as excavation, and notes the advantages of regionally based surveys. There is a call for a process of review which will help aerial archaeology to fulfil its potential to address major historical questions.
Simon Denison
John J Wilkes
Remembers the Romanist's career.
Clive Gamble
Summarises various kinds of evidence recovered over the last hundred years or so and attempts a synthesis of human cultural achievement in the Early and Middle Palaeolithic. It is argued that early humans led habitual but largely individualistic lives. They seem to have existed in small social groups and to have had little control over territoriality.
Reports on excavations at two sites, which are uncovering evidence of settlements dating from the late fourth and early third millennium BC.
Reports on preliminary results of chlorine-36 dating of a rock fragment from Stonehenge and of bluestone outcrops from Welsh quarry sites.
Reports on the progress of a public inquiry into an application to remove the historically important steam engine from the Grade II listed Leigh Mill, Wigan.
Clive Robert Orton
Summarises conflicting arguments recently put forward to explain the early development of Roman London. Evidence of Roman settlement and the road system is considered against the natural topography of the lower Thames valley, giving rise to suggestions that early settlement was centred on Westminster or Southwark, rather than the City of London.
Brain tissues were preserved in waterlogged graves in a lay cemetery of Augustinian Friary in Hull. DNA analysis is to be undertaken. An important collection of clothing was also recovered from the graves, which date from fourteenth to sixteenth century.
