Dear List,

Can anyone point me in the direction of an excavation report or reports in the UK which detail the excavation of a water source, in particular a spring, associated with a prehistoric settlement or camp.

Kindest regards,

Trevor

Hi Trevor and welcome to the forum. There are a few papers that might help. One place to look is Ross's article list in 'Shafts, pits, wells - sanctuaries of the belgic Britons' 255-285 in Simpson, D. and Coles, J. 1968. Studies in Ancient Europe. Leicester: Leicester University Press.

Also there is Cunliffes, excavation at Bath in 3 volumes: Cunliffe, B. 1988. The Temple of Sulis Minerva at Bath. Oxford: Oxford University Committee for Archaeology Monograph.

There are a few other papers, that I will add later.

A variety of other useful papers include:

May, J. 1996. Dragonby Report on Excavations at an IA and RB Settlement in N. Lincolnshire. Oxford: Oxbow Books

Wilmott, T. 1984. Roman timber lined wells in the city of London: Further examples. Transactions of the London and Middlesex Archaeological Society, 35, 5-10.

Fulford, M. 2001. Links with the past; Pervasive 'ritual' behaviour in Roman Britain. Britannia, 32, 188-218. [Though this is more concerned with ritual].
