Cotswold Archaeology have recently undertaken a number of archaeological excavations in Redcliff and Temple, Wapping Wharf and Lockleaze. Collectively, these investigations have begun to shed further light on Bristol housing and industry, from the Roman to post-medieval periods. This includes the discovery of a Roman villa, medieval and post-medieval houses of varying status, and evidence for industries including brick-making, ship-building, glass-making, distilling and clay tobacco-pipe manufacture. The talk will present a brief overview and key highlights from each of these archaeological excavations.
