Reports survey of a sub-circular multivallate fort and the surrounding landscape and features. These latter include prehistoric trackways, pre-medieval fields, a robbed out cairn, rock art on natural outcrops, and evidence of medieval and post-medieval activity in the form of ridge-and-furrow, field systems, a deer park, trackways and agricultural activity.

Excavations isolated six phases of construction and occupation activity, ranging from the earliest primary turf and timber fort through to post-medieval and modern structures. The second phase, within the Roman fort, involved the erection of officers' quarters and other barrack blocks, with evidence of roadways (viae sagularis and vicinaria). Their continued development is evinced up to period four. Medieval occupation debris characterised period five, followed directly by post-medieval and modern structures including cobbled surfaces and a terrace of cottages. There are specialist reports on `The Roman pottery' by J N Dore (44--55), `The medieval and post-medieval pottery' by M Chard (55--7), `Coin report' R J Brickstock (57--62), `Small finds report' by M C Bishop (62--8), `Worked stone report' by J C N Coulston (68--71). Then there is `Environmental report: palaeobotanical evidence' by J P Huntley (71--4), followed by `Animal bone evidence' S Stallibrass (74--9), `Archaeomagnetic dating report' by M Noel (79--81). Finally, conclusions are presented and a bibliography provided.

Notes the discovery of a decorated strap-end thought to have been affixed to some form of textile during its career. It is assigned a ninth-century date, based on its Trewhiddle-style decoration. Other examples from the Yorkshires are provided and the evidence for a Yorkshire based workshop for this kind of material discussed.

The first report section deals with six phases of activity at the Orchard Street site. These range from scant pre-town wall activity, through construction of the wall in the mid-fourteenth century, to post-wall land use, midden, Civil War and post-medieval activity. There are details of the materials and construction along with mason's marks and the parapet. Specialist reports include `Pottery' by Janet Vaughan (107--18), `Window glass' by Pam Graves (118--23), `Clay tobacco pipes' by John Nolan (123), `Ceramic building material' by John Nolan (123--4), `Stone objects' by John Nolan (125), `Metalwork' by Janet Vaughan (125--6), and `Animal bone' by Keith Dobney & Deborah Jaques (126--30).<p>The second section deals with the Croft Street site and Plummer Tower. Excavations confirmed that the wall and tower were constructed separately. The tower retains none of its original medieval features, having been extensively adapted during the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. There is evidence of a Civil War bastion. `The finds' section, by Janet Vaughan (141--6), includes details of medieval and post-medieval pottery, glass, clay tobacco pipes, ceramic building material, stone, coins, and metalwork.

Excavations revealed that after the foreshore had been consolidated behind an artificial embankment in the thirteenth century, a limeburning industry was established which flourished during the fourteenth century. After the end of the medieval period the land was divided into a set of parallel plots; buildings were constructed on top of landfill beside the Swirle during the seventeenth century, and later across the whole site. The context of this site on the Newcastle waterfront is considered, the technology of the kilns is reviewed and compared with other medieval examples. The sources of raw material were not local, and it is suggested that the limeburning industry was linked to the coal trade. There is an `Introduction' by Colm O'Brien (151--3), followed by `Excavations at the Swirle' by Nick Taverner & Alan Williams (153--73), `The building history' by Grace McCombie (173--8), `The pottery' by Margaret Ellison (178--205), thence `Roofing materials' Margaret Ellison (205--6), `Clay tobacco pipes' by Margaret Ellison (206--11), `Glass' by Margaret Ellison (211--12), `The leather' by Mick MacElvaney (213--14), `Metalwork' by Alan Williams (214), and a `Discussion' by Colm O'Brien & Alan Williams (216--26). There are two appendices, a `Report on lithological samples' by Andrew Newman (226--31) and `Cartographic and documentary sources for building history' (231).
