Vix Hughes: Pots, pits, kilns and wells at Longford

The site at Longford, excavated by Oxford Archaeology in 2014 showed Bronze Age and Iron Age activity. In the early Roman period the area enclosed was reduced and two pottery kilns were constructed.  In addition to the kilns there were two substantial stone-lined wells and an intriguing pit with pot bases placed on a layer of clay.

The shift in focus might reflect the establishment of the fort and settlement at Glevum, which started around AD 49 with the first fort built, and the later legionary fort built AD 64-66.

To find out more come along to the next Winter meeting of GlosArch on Monday 5 December.
