Abstract:
Volume on the archaeology of the English county of Bedford and its environs, bringing together the results of five excavations over a four year period in the late 1980s and early 1990s at Gold Lane, Biddenham (a Late Bronze Age and Iron Age settlement site); Shillington Bury (an Iron Age settlement site); Ruxox (a Late Iron Age and Romano-British settlement and Roman cemetery); Aston Well (a Roman villa); and Kempston (a Roman settlement and cemetery). One of the cemeteries, Kempston, includes a significant proportion of decapitations from the Roman period and there is a detailed analysis of this phenomenon. At the same site, burial from the sixth century AD hints at some form of continuous settlement in the area. Kempston is also indicates the possibility that it is a planned rural settlement dating to the earliest years of the Roman province. The volume also includes the largest finds and ceramics assemblages presently published in the county. It contains accounts of several pollen columns taken at Ruxox and Kempston and provides a commentary on the environmental history of the region. The additional data on palaeoenvironmental evidence from the sites provides insight into the effect of the environment on later prehistoric communities and the means by which these communities changed and adapted the environment. The volume aims to contribute to the debate into the role of human agency in change and adaptation to events at a local level. Contributions include brief notes on the geophysical evidence at Shillington Bury, Aston Well and Kempston and
