In 2017 and 2018 Oxford Cotswold Archaeology (OCA) Joint Venture undertook archaeological excavations ahead of redevelopment at Redcliff Quarter in Bristol. This webinar, the second in a series of three lectures exploring the archaeology of the site and the wider Redcliffe area, will focus on the results of the dig, which unearthed settlement remains dating as far back as the 12th century, when the land on this side of the River Avon was reclaimed from the marsh. Remains included tenement boundaries, stone-founded buildings and refuse pits, with the deepest features containing organic materials preserved by waterlogging, such as wood, leather, plants and insects, yielding some remarkable insights into the inhabitants and the environment of the suburb.
