Abstract:
Excavations carried out in 1981 and 1986 provided evidence for at least two periods of major public works. The earliest construction appears to mark the first colonisation of the area and dates from late first or early second century AD. The final building phase, of the late third century AD, was clearly intended to dominate the riverfront with an impressive urban monument. An introduction to previous work in the area and the geological and topographical background of the site is followed by a description of the layout, construction and function of buildings from Periods I and II and a discussion of the development and context of the south-west quarter. The archaeological evidence from the sites of Peter's Hill, Sunlight Wharf, and Salvation Army Headquarters is detailed, with a report on the latter by Peter Marsden (63). The following section reproduces a collection of eighteenth and nineteenth century observations of features in the vicinity of the recent excavations and the relationship between the two is discussed in the final chapter. The volume concludes with: `Appendix 1: tree-ring dating of oak timbers from Peter's Hill and Sunlight Wharf' by Jennifer Hillam (95--9); `Appendix 2: The building material' by Ian Betts (99--101); `Appendix 3: timber supplies (101--2); `Appendix 4: Archive Reports -- availability (102); `Appendix 5: Site numbering (102). The `Index' is by L Adkins & R Adkins (107--8).
