The Medieval Cross Slab Grave Covers of Co Durham
Peter Ryder (1985)

ISBN 0-9510388-0-X

The recumbent cross slab grave cover is certainly the most common form of medieval sepulchral monument to survive in the British Isles today, yet by the reasons of its ubiquity and its generally humble nature, one that has received surprisingly little attention. Around 550 cross slabs or slab fragments survive in County Durham, distributed between 75 sites, the majority of which are parish churches.

As such, they are full of data and source material for botanical and vertebrate remains. The descriptions of these data are used as a basis for recommendations for future research, and for affording priorities for future excavation and post-excavation work that might involve these types of material.

Roman Piercebridge: Excavations by D W Harding and Peter Scott 1969-1981 Edited by H E M Cool and D J P Mason

ISBN 978 0 9510388 57

This handsome 362-page hardbacked volume describes the results of the extensive excavations carried out by the late Peter Scott at Piercebridge in the 1970s which explored parts of the Roman fort, the adjacent civil settlement and the remains of a previously unsuspected bridge revealed during gravel extraction. It also includes a report on the excavation by Dr (now Professor) Dennis Harding of a villa at nearby Holme House, one of the most northerly in the whole of Britain. There are full accounts of the vast amount of pottery recovered along with the coins, metalwork, animal bone and high quality glassware. Thus, finally, there is what one hopes is a fitting testament to all the work done by Peter Scott, Dennis Harding and all their helpers.
