Report on the Excavations at Usk, 1965-76: Fortress Excavations, 1972-74


Report on the Excavations at Usk, 1965-76: Fortress Excavations, 1972-74 by I. R. Scott

This volume is mainly concerned with the second series of excavations at Usk which examined parts of the road system, workshops and officers houses as well as an account of the small fort built later on site.


The Usk reports will long serve as a textbook for the excavation of Roman military timber buildings. In the present volume the results of the excavation are set out in meticulous detail, the material is skilfully organized, the plans are clear and elegantly drawn and the standard of printing is such that few will regard the price of the volume as unreasonable. The achievement is all ther more impressive when the technical problems of exccavation are appreciated: in post-Roman times alterations occurred in the subsoil which often made features difficult to define. -Britannia
