Urban Development in North-west Roman Southwark Paperback
by Carrie Cowan
Part of the MoLAS Monograph series
The river crossing and access to the River Thames were major influences on the siting of Roman Southwark, where Watling Street and Stane Street converged.
Excavations at Courage's Brewery revealed an archaeological sequence dating back to Prehistoric times.
The Roman remains begin from AD40-55 and show the development of the site from the 1st to the 4th centuries, as the area increased in wealth before the occupation phase ended to be replaced with a cemetery.
This excavation report provides important new information about the development of Roman Southwark, leading the way for further publication and research.
