The City by the Pool: Assessing the Archaeology of the City of Lincoln (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


There are two aspects to this huge publication. It is firstly a comprehensive synthesis of the information from excavations and building surveys in and around Lincoln, which endorses some established ideas but also proposes exciting new ones: the ritual nature of the area in the late Bronze and Iron Age, and its effect on the Roman occupation; a Saxon settlement and market site; the layout of medieval markets around the ecclesiastical centre; the development of settlements on the valley floor; a concentration of early Dissenting communities within the city; and, the growth of industrial Lincoln from the 1840s onwards. This review is extensively illustrated by lots of figures and photos and newly-drawn maps and plans. Behind the synthesis is LARA, the Lincoln Archaeological Research Assessment, a relational database of the city's archaeology, which is maintained by the city's Planning Department, and is included here in GIS form on a CD-Rom. For any spot within the city it will tell you what is known archaeologically and, more importantly, what questions need to be answered about the area. It is both a Research Assessment tool and a Planning tool.

The book is the last word in Urban Archaeological Assessment and it will be of interest to archaeologists and planners far beyond the boundaries of Lincoln.
