Excavation of Roman Buildings, Evesham Street

Description of this historic site

The remains of Roman buildings and a ditch were found during excavations on Evesham Street, Alcester. Roman coins were recovered from the site.

Notes about this historic site

1 Trial excavations in advance of infill housing development. The ancient topsoil had been removed in order to lay a gravel surface. This was followed by a drainage or boundary ditch which was eventually filled in and partly overlain by another gravel surface. The finds dated largely from the C2 but all of the nineteen coins from the topsoil were C3/C4, suggesting that later remains had been ploughed away.
2 Listed as site no 77.
