Abstract:
The archaeological evaluation of the Cedars demonstrated an excellent, more or less continuous, stratigraphic sequence for the Roman and Saxon periods. While many new aspects to the development of the site from its foundation as a major villa complex were unearthed, there was a greater sense of how little was really known, especially when trying to relate the archaeology at the Cedars with that elsewhere in the village. The villa tended to dominate the archaeology of the village, over-shadowing the understanding of the Saxon period and its monastic associations. The two may have been very closely related however, and work at the Cedars showed that there was great potential for understanding more about this relationship. [Au]
