Description of this historic site

During an excavation features were excavated that were suggestive of the remains of Roman buildings. The site was situated on Stratford Road, Alcester.

Notes about this historic site

1 Small trial excavations in 1982 (AL8) in advance of factory/warehouse development established the presence of Roman gravel surfaces, probably C1 or C2 in date, a possible beam slot and post hole. A watching brief in May 1983 confirmed the presence of gravel surfaces but produced no more evidence of the possible timber buildings.
2 Listed as site no 74.
3 Evaluated as part of the Stratford Road Redevelopment in 1989.
4 Noted in Britannia (1983).
5 Brief for 4 above.
