At the limits of Lundenwic: excavations in the north-west of Middle Saxon London at St Martin's Courtyard, 2007-8

2013

Abstract

This thought-provoking volume presents the results of the archaeological investigation of a large site in Lundenwic. A fragmentary sequence nevertheless includes possible Early Saxon activity, 7th- and 8th-century AD settlement features including a cookshop, a workshop for non-ferrous metalworking and debris from a smithy, and the latest radiocarbon-dated inhumation in Lundenwic (cal AD 720–950). These excavations have made important contributions to our understanding of Lundenwic, which has been enhanced by the unprecedented level of organic preservation at the site. The resulting survival of Saxon footwear, timber objects and uncharred botanical remains adds unusual detail to this publication.
