Excavations at North Lane, Canterbury 1993 and 1996 Paperback / softback
by Jon Rady
Part of the CAT Occasional Paper series
Further evidence for the industrial nature of the northern extra-mural suburb of Canterbury from the Roman, through medieval and post-medieval periods, was discovered in excavations close to North Lane.
Roman discoveries include quarries servicing the pottery and tile industry, a series of heavily-used roads and a late Roman road-side burial, possibly a family group.
Medieval industrial and commercial activity to the rear of premises on North Lane is evident from the contents of pits and features of the period.
A study of medieval plots and later boundaries suggests that the line of the Roman road was preserved in the local topography until relatively recent times.
