Alcester Roman Town

Hob Uid: 328440
Location :
Warwickshire
Stratford-on-Avon
Arrow with Weethley, Alcester
Grid Ref : SP0890057300
Summary : The site of a Roman town at the confluence of the rivers Alne and Arrow. The distribution of the finds indicates that the settlement covered as large an area as the modern town, which, for the most part, overlies it. Stone buildings, tessellated pavements, coin hoards, large cemeteries etc. indicate that it was of reasonable size and had a long continuous occupation. The line of Ryknild Street and the crossing of two minor roads at a river is probably the reason for its growth and prosperity. The Roman town appears to have functioned principally as a marketing and manufacturing centre for a large agricultural hinterland. No public buildings, temples or civic amenities have been identified. The settlement is divided by a series of streets, irregularly planned, extending from two principal roads. Complexes of timber and daub structures and substantial stone buildings were subject to rebuilding and combined both residential and industrial commercial activities. Occupation of the area in the Roman period appears to start in the Nerovian-Flavian period. The character of this occupation is not clear. A number of features have been found under the streets of the southern part of the town which date from the late 1st to the mid 2nd century. By the mid 2nd century the industries in this part of the town were well established and it appears that at this time the settlement expanded considerably.

There is no comprehensive account of the Roman town of Alcester, only reports of finds, foundations etc. that have been recorded over 400 years. The distribution of the finds indicates that the settlement covered as large an area as the modern town, which, for the most part, overlies it. Stone buildings, tessellated pavements, coin hoards, large cemeteries etc. indicate that it was no mean place and had a long continuous occupation. The line
of Ryknild Street and the crossing of two minor roads at a river
is probably the reason for its growth and prosperity.

The Roman name for the town has not been traced and it is not recorded in any of the Itineraries - the name of Alauna was suggested by Wm. Baxter early in the 18c. and adopted by Bertram in his forgery 'Richard of Cirencester', it has no foundation.

Miss Christine Mahany has conducted excavations 1963 - 65. Her final report is not yet available but see Map Diagram. She
considers the settlement to have had three individual aspects.
(a) The Town. Outlined in red on the map diagram.
(b) An extra mural settlement including an industrial area and a
probable market area. (Brown on the map diagram - this is the named 'Birch Abbey' site.)
(c) A small ? fort. This is very doubtful and the line (green
on the map diagram) is suggested from a single excavation.

There are no extant Roman remains and excavation has for the moment ceased although the Alcester Exc.n. Committee is still an active body.

Finds are held by museums at Birmingham, Stratford and Warwick.(1-1b)

Excavation Reports (2-6)

"Alcester, Warwickshire. There is positive evidence of a wall and rampart here found by excavation. This appears to enclose a fairly small walled area in the north-eastern portion of the modern town, using the river as a protection on that side, but there are extensive suburbs to the south" (7)

ALAUNA mentioned in Ravenna Cosmography 106 (39) is probably the Roman town of Alcester, Warwickshire on the River Alne. (8)

Scheduled as 'Roman town'. (9)

The Roman town of Alcester appears to have functioned principally as a marketing and manufacturing centre for a large agricultural hinterland. No public buildings, temples or civic amenities have been identified. The settlement is divided by a series of streets, irregularly planned, extending from two principal roads RR 56b and RR 18a. Complexes of timber and daub structures and substantial stone buildings were subject to rebuilding and combined both residential and industrial commercial activities. (55,55a)

Occupation of the area in the Roman period appears to start in the Nerovian-Flavian period. The character of this occupation is not clear. A number of features have been found under the streets of the southern part of the town which date from the late 1st to the mid 2nd century. By the mid 2nd century the industries in this part of the town were well established and it appears that at this time the settlement expanded considerably. (55,55a)

An area between a large bend in the River Arrow to the E and marshland to the N was enclosed by a clay and turf bank. The date of the bank is not entirely clear, being 2nd century or later. The defences were reinforced in the 4th century by a stone wall and included at least one bastion. (27,44,45,54)

The building sequences on the various sites seem to indicate continued prosperity until the late C4. At this time the prosperity of the settlement as a whole seems to have declined, The town appears to continue to function until the C5. (55,55a)

To the south of the unenclosed settlement a number of cemeteries have been located containing a number of possible Anglo-Saxon burials. (3,12-15,27)
