The Grubenhaus in Anglo-Saxon England
by Jess Tipper


208 pages including 54 monochrome figures, 31 colour figures and 8 colour plates.

This volume, published by the LRC in 2004 with the aid of a grant from English Heritage, incorporates in-depth analysis and discussion of the evidence relating to Anglo-Saxon Grubenhäuser excavated in England  These structures which a ubiquitous in Early-Middle Saxon domestic settlements have been the subject of diverse interpretations, often based on a poor understanding of the evidence. The volume includes the detailed assessment of the excavated evidence from the Early-Middle Saxon settlement at West Heslerton and a re-assessment of the evidence from the other two major excavated settlements of the period Mucking, Essex and West Stow, Suffolk. The volume addresses issues of site formation and de-formation which are of relevance to all archaeologists and demonstrates that the domestic refuse that almost invariably fills these features bears no relation to the function of the buildings that once stood above the pit. The pits themselves, it is clear, were dug to provide a dry air space beneath a suspended floor.
