This collection presents the summative output from an Oxford University / Community Archaeology research project based on eastern district of City of Oxford (UK) in the form of an open access monograph.

Excerpt from the Introduction:

"This book teaches some important lessons. Field archaeology does not have to be restricted to farmland and gravel quarries, nor are large scale excavations necessarily the only way of working. Archeox has demonstrated how much can be learnt by methods that are better suited to urban areas: test pitting, geophysical survey, archival research, and the study of museum collections. The results have been a revelation and this book delivers on its aim to document the development of a community. While it does present the results of conventional excavations – thoroughly useful ones - it is this combination of methods, along with the skills of the participants, that really breaks new ground. The project asked important questions and it answered them convincingly. The result is a completely fresh understanding of East Oxford".
