Purbeck papers

Hinton, D.A. (ed.) (2002) Purbeck papers, Oxford, GB, Oxbow books, 152pp. (University of Southampton Department of Archaeology Monograph, 4).

Record type: Book


The coastal area of Purbeck in Dorset is rich in archaeological finds, and much rescue work has recently taken place here due to oil-field and other industrial development. The Purbeck project was initiated to see what could be added to this knowledge through modern methods of archaeological survey and through the analysis of historical sources. The papers in this collection look at various aspects of Purbeck history and archaeology, from the Iron Age, Roman and Medieval periods, to the eighteenth century.

Contents: The excavation of an Iron Age and Romano-British settlement in Quarry Field, south of Compact Farm, Worth Matravers, Dorset (A H Graham, D A Hinton and D P S Peacock); A 'marginal economy'? The Isle of Purbeck from the Norman Conquest to the Black Death (D A Hinton); Some pre-Black Death surveys and extents of Purbeck (N S Rushton); Purbeck marble in Roman and medieval Britain (D F Williams); Report on the survey of the strip lynchets at Worth Matravers, Dorset (D McOmish); The Worth Matravers strip fields in the eighteenth century (D A Hinton and H Trapp).
