Abstract:
The watching brief was carried out at a development site where an evaluation had identified Roman features, and which may have been crossed by Ryknield Street, one of the main Roman roads of Derby. The site lay 400 metres from an early Roman fort and 600 metres from a second fort and a vicus. Roman remains found during the watching brief included occupation layers and probable quarry pits. Two wells containing residual Roman pottery were found, and the possible remains of later plough-soils were noted. It was concluded that the Roman activity represented possible settlement, perhaps stemming from the Little Chester fort as ribbon development along Ryknield Street. [AIP]
