(First published 1994; revised 2004, 2019)
This resource is the product of a co-operation between the author, Andy Harmsworth (Head of History, Simon Langton Girls School, Canterbury) and the Canterbury Archaeological Trust. It takes us on a journey through time, starting 2000 years ago with Iron Age settlers. We then progress through the development of a prosperous Roman town ending with its eventual decline some 400 years later.
Roman Canterbury is well researched with particular emphasis given to archaeological evidence from local sites and artefacts, represented by a wealth of high quality illustrations, reconstructions and photographs. The accompanying four pages of Teachers Notes give ideas for using the resource in other National Curriculum subjects as well as History.
"This book is an essential resource for teaching history in Kent in all Key Stages"

A journey to Medieval Canterbury
This lively book will take you on a journey back in time, telling a story created from a wealth of surviving buildings, artefacts and documentary sources. It begins with a taste of Anglo-Saxon life preceding the arrival of Duke William of Normandy in 1066. You then witness the impact on the city made by the Norman Conquest and how Canterbury was transformed into a thriving commercial centre during the Middle Ages or Medieval period. Exactly where your journey through Medieval Canterbury ends is not too certain as you will see . . .
Clearly presented text and numerous quality illustrations and photographs combine to make this a valuable resource and essential companion to Roman Canterbury, by the same authors.
