Excavations at Market Way, St Stephen's, Canterbury


Number 8 in Canterbury Archaeological Trust's occasional paper series publishes further findings in Canterbury's northern suburbs, this time close to Roman pottery and tile kilns recorded during the relocation of the cattle market in the 1950s. The kilns were established in an existing agricultural landscape in the mid-1st century AD and then after the tile and pottery industry declined at the end of the second century, the area was used for burial. One of the graves on the site contained a re-used inscribed funerary plaque. In the early 8th century a new settlement developed, with the characteristic sunken-featured structures and other domestic features.
