December: Books!

ULAS have produced a range of publications this year, which make great stocking fillers!

Check out an interesting article on prehistoric and Anglo-Saxon activity in Rothley, along with a detailed roundup of archaeological discoveries in Leicestershire, and a report on the Charnwood Roots project, in Leicestershire Archaeological and Historical Society Transactions Volume 92.

A new book on Roman Leicester…Life in the Roman World: Roman Leicester by Giacomo Savani, Sarah Scott and Mathew Morris explores the nature of everyday life under the Romans. (see also: https://ulasnews.com/2018/11/28/new-book-on-life-in-roman-leicester-launched/).

There is an interesting article in Internet Archaeology on Assemblages of Roman pottery from Leicester entitled “Eating In and Dining Out in Roman Leicester: Exploring pottery consumption patterns across the town and its suburbs” see: http://intarch.ac.uk/journal/issue50/index.html

If medieval is more your thing have a look at “Fishing and Managing the Trent in the Medieval Period (7th–14th Century) Excavations at Hemington Quarry (1998–2000), Castle Donington, UK . BAR)”
