My report on the excavation of Roman buildings on Longis Common is published in the latest edition of the Alderney Society Bulletin. Due to the passage of time I have been able to combine the tentative results of the fortuitous discoveries of 2017, the dig where I was assisted by school students in 2018 and the formal excavation of 2019.
Our trenches uncovered part of the plan of a large building with three rooms, or three adjacent buildings, whose walls were still standing 800mm above the Roman land surface. It extends for at least 20 metres along a pavement almost parallel to the existing road called Les Mielles and is six metres deep.
The Bulletin also contains an update by my colleague Dr Phil de Jersey on the carbon-14 dating of Iron Age human remains from trenches further to the north.
