Thames Valley Archaeological Services Occasional Paper 8

Roman and Medieval Occupation at The Former Worcester City Football Club, St George's Lane, Worcester

by Daniel Bray

Occasional Paper 8 cover

A small area excavation revealed a dense cluster of multi-period archaeological deposits ranging from (probably) the Iron Age, Roman, medieval and post-medieval periods. A single un-urned cremation burial is only very tentatively dated to the late Iron Age, but could equally be Roman. The site primarily comprised large boundary ditches, with a minimum of three reorganizations of the layout in the Roman period. Although a small number of pits and postholes were identified, and a moderate quantity of Roman tile, no associated structures were revealed, but the presence of this material suggests a building in the near vicinity. Large quantities of iron smelting slag and fragments of furnace lining suggest that iron production was occurring on or near to the site with a minimum of two furnaces implied. No furnace remains were present within the area examined, however.

A4 soft cover, 26pp, illustrated throughout including 8 colour plates.
