  • Nigel Baker (a1), Hal Dalwood (a2), Richard Holt (a3), Charles Mundy (a4) and Gary Taylor (a2)...
Extract

The modern plan of the west Midlands city of Worcester, like so many in England, hides a series of ancient towns under the standing streets. Archaeological and historical exploration, and the old topography that shows itself in modern plots and street lines, make possible the recovery of the early pattern.
