Description of this historic site

The possible site of a Roman cemetery which lies to the east of Bleachfield Street, Alcester.

Notes about this historic site

1 In putting in new posts human remains found at practically every hole (marginal note on 1:2500 map). This is probably the area of the main Roman cemetery. Two urns found in Blacklands before 1860 containing human bones and ashes (Kelly’s Directory).
2 Above information is highly suspect; probably not a Roman cemetery.
3 Mentioned by Seaby in his notes on finds in Alcester. Davis’ entries are confused on the subject, particularly with regard to location.
