Can I draw your attention to a publication which has just come out: Gloucester, the Roman forum and the post-Roman sequence at the city centre. This is a final report of some quite special discoveries made at the centre of Gloucester a very long time ago (1968-71). It uses present-day knowledge and has discussions of Roman and Late Saxon Gloucester, and it makes much use of documentary evidence for the more recent periods. If you're interested in the city's archaeology, this should give a feel of it over many centuries.

The transcription of the Gloucestershire Hearth Tax 1672 has been made available by Jan Broadway. She hopes when time permits to produce a full scholarly edition and analysis, but feels researchers may appreciate access to the transcription in the meantime.
