Monograph 9, entitled "Archaeological Investigations in the Silchester Hinterland", explores the landscape use around the Roman town.
Silchester is one the the best-known and best-preserved Roman towns in Britain. A series of archaeological investigations conducted as part of the planning process has added to our knowledge of how the landscape around the site of the Roman town was used and developed.
The investigations reported in this volume include two fieldwalking surveys of the Lodden valley and the area immediately around Silchester itself as well as sites in Arborfield, Mortimer, Silchester and Latchmere Green. None of the sites reported here is remarkable by itself but the steady accumulation of evidence from many such small sites can transform the way entire landscapes are perceived.
