'A watching brief in field OS 4369' by R H Leech (51–3) outlines features and finds from a two day excavation undertaken in the wake of a pipe trench cutting waterlogged Roman deposits.

Abstract

A report on evidence from two watching briefs in advance, and during the early stages of, road construction. 'A watching brief in field OS 4369' by R H Leech (51–3) outlines features and finds from a two day excavation undertaken in the wake of a pipe trench cutting waterlogged Roman deposits. The results indicated two building periods for the vicus north of the fort, probably of first- and second-century date. 'The watching brief in advance of road construction' by R H Leech & D Scott (53–6) describes work between Rothay Road and Barrows Road which observed more structural features east and west of the road, in a necessarily less detailed exercise. The finds from both watching briefs included pottery, and there are reports on 'The samian' by B H Hartley & Brenda Dickinson (56 & 58–60), and 'The mortaria' by K Hartley & L M Hird (60–2). Also noted are a gold bracelet, lead objects, wood objects, and pieces of leather including parts of two composite shoe soles. There is also a note on 'The coins from Ambleside' by D C A Shotter (66 & 68).
