Abstract :
The four reports deal with three cultural periods : Iron Age, Romano-British and medieval. Some four or five centuries after the Helpringham salt industry had ceased operating, Romano-British salters extended and moved the location of their industry eastwards. Two reports deal with a microcosm of the Romano-British salt producers at Holbeach Saint Johns. The final report takes the process forward into the middle ages. In this temporal leap the landscape altered yet again, as did salt-making methods. Part of a salt-making site was excavated in Bicker Haven. Principal discoveries were a pair of hearths associated with a small domestic building. Finds of local pottery and a token suggest that the main period of activity was towards the end of the first quarter of the 14th c. ;
