Archaeological excavations along the A5300 road corridor in Merseyside

R.W.Cowell and R.A. Philpott

In 1993 the construction of the A5300 road provided the opportunity for archaeologists from Liverpool Museum to investigate a corridor of land through the townships of Tarbock, Ditton and Halewood, Merseyside. The first part of this report provides detailed accounts of the resulting excavations at three Mesolithic sites, a late prehistoric double-ditched enclosure and two Romano-British and medieval farmsteads. These have produced valuable evidence for wider regional research, particularly for the nature of the Romano-British settlement. The late prehistoric settlement is an important addition to the meagre number of such sites in the region, while artefact studies make a significant contribution to an understanding of prehistoric hunter-gatherer settlement patterns and medieval pottery use. The second part draws on this new evidence to provide in-depth regional accounts of current research and theories on settlement and landuse for these periods.
