Description

A chance find of Roman pottery in a garden at Irby, Wirral, in the 1940s led, in 1987, to the discovery by archaeologists of a major site. Excavating from 1987 to 1996 in a series of suburban gardens, researchers found evidence for a long sequence of occupation from the Mesolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Romano-British, early medieval, and later medieval periods. This book offers a fascinating account of the key discoveries from the site and presents evidence of the structures, artifacts, and plant remains from this long-lived settlement."show more
