In the summer of 2000 archaeological excavations on the periphery of the Roman ‘small town’ at Worcester revealed extensive evidence for timber-framed buildings, probably representing the lower status homes of some of the settlement’s inhabitants. Major changes during the later Roman period led to much of the site being levelled and a series of gravel and cobbled surfaces being laid out. Several new structures were then built in this area, including a substantial post-built rectangular building, together defining a courtyard associated with a number of hearths, thought to be part of a smithy complex. It may even have formed one element of a wider ‘light industrial’ zone of the settlement, with evidence for pottery production and other metalworking in the vicinity. This volume presents the results of this work, setting it in the context of increasing archaeological investigation of Roman Worcester, which together is transforming our understanding of the settlement.
