A summary of recent archaeological investigation at the former Media Studies College on Brunswick Road, Gloucester. Situated immediately outside the Roman and medieval town defences, the excavation revealed evidence for early Roman industrial activity. This was followed in the mid to late Roman periods by the creation of Barton Cemetery from which, approximately 200 burials were recovered. Activity associated with the post-Roman, medieval and early postmedieval periods, including field systems and a timber-framed building, were also identified suggesting continued occupation of the site spanning at least 1800 years.
