Archaeology of Oxford in 20 Digs (Paperback)

David Radford


From the remains of a 10th-11th century massacre at St John's College through to the biggest exposure of medieval buildings yet seen in Oxford at the Westgate Shopping Centre, excavations in Oxford have continued to uncover exciting new information about city's past. Oxford in 20 Digs takes the reader on a journey through a selection of the most groundbreaking or unusual archaeological discoveries made in the city over the last 130 years and includes updates on recent discoveries. This unique study celebrates Oxford's archaeological heritage in a new and accessible way and is illustrated with an extensive selection of photographs and illustrations. The journey starts with the Victorian pioneers and concludes with discoveries that are still, in archaeological terms, fresh out of the ground and that are helping us to reshape our understanding of this world famous city.
