Saltmaking has been an important industry in the Fenland of eastern England for many years. This large report presents the results of three major excavations carried out between 1991 and 1995 as part of the Fenland Management Project. These sites are an Iron Age saltern in Cowbit Wash and an early Roman saltern in Morton Fen, both in Lincolnshire, and a site at Middleton in Norfolk. The results from these and other sites in the area, plus other types of related research being carried out, allows a reconstruction of changes in the procedures and equipment used in saltmaking from the middle Iron Age to the end of the Roman period. A vast amount of information at an amazingly low price. Summaries in French and German.
