Item description for Excavations at Deansway, Worcester, 1988-89: Romano-British Small Town to Late Medieval City (Research Report Series) by Rachel Edward Hal Dalwood...
The Deansway excavation lay in the center of Worcester, where four large areas excavated in 1988-89. Deeply stratified deposits revealed extensive evidence for the development of the settlement from a Romano-British small town to a late medieval city. This volume is a major contribution to understanding the development of Worcester. The evidence for the Romano-British settlement and the important role played by ironworking is examined in detail. The excavation located the Anglo-Saxon defenses and evidence for intensive urban occupation from the 10th century onwards. This volume considers fully the evidence for medieval buildings, craft production, food consumption and material culture. A late medieval bronze foundry was fully investigated, and provides an important contribution to knowledge of this industry.
