From the rear side cover: The bulk of this book is devoted to two recent excavation-campaigns, which took place on adjacent sites in southern Lancaster. Also included is an assessment of the current state of our knowledge of the Roman fort at Lancaster and its associated civilian settlement, and an attempt to draw together all the reports of funerary material found between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries, which are contained in a variety of antiquarian and casual publications. The final chapter of the book presents a discussion of these and other related contextual matters.

Chapters include: The Roman Site at Lancaster, Excavations on Penny Street and King Street, Excavations on the site of the Arla Foods Depot on Aldcliffe Road, Lancaster's Roman Cemeteries in Context, The Burrow Roman Sculptures, and The Conservation of the Roman Memorial Stone. The book is illustrated throughout with lots of colour and black and white photographs, drawings and maps.
