Description/Abstract

Stratigraphic and palynoiogical evidence from trenches at Wollaston, Northamptonshire,
suggest viticulture was extensivelypractised at this Roman site. It is argued that the apparent
lack of viticultural tools and wine presses in the archaeological record in Britain is not
reliable evidence for the absence of viticulture at that time.
