Title:An Excavation on the Post-Roman Site at Bantham, South Devon
Originator:Silvester, R. J.
Summary:In the light of the 1978 excavations Lady Fox's theory is worth reconsidering after being dismissed in recent years. The dunes may have been a location, possibly seasonal, where imported goods were off-loaded and it is possible some sort of mart existed. With the discovery of re-used Roman sherds, presumably collected from a deserted site nearby, it can be argued that the Iron Age sherds may have reached the site in a similar manner, and the Bronze Age and medieval finds may have little significance in terms of settlement.
