This monograph provides a long-awaited overview of the evidence for London’s Early and Middle Saxon rural settlement, which draws on the results of six decades of archaeological fieldwork, in addition to historical and place-name evidence. This indispensable synthesis of published and archive material includes accounts of 26 occupation sites and six Thames fish traps, which give background information as well as detailed descriptions of the archaeological remains. Thematic sections consider various topics, including the relationship of settlement to landscape, settlement layout, buildings, household and personal items, crafts, farming and fishing. Specialist research focuses on pottery, but also discusses and catalogues other finds.
