This second volume presenting the research carried out through the Exeter: A Place in Time project presents a series of specialist contributions that underpin the general overview published in the first volume. Chapter 2 provides summaries of the excavations carried out within the city of Exeter between 1812 and 2019, while Chapter 3 draws together the evidence for the plan of the legionary fortress and the streets and buildings of the Roman town. Chapter 4 presents the medieval documentary evidence relating to the excavations at three sites in central Exeter (High Street, Trichay Street and Goldsmith Street), with the excavation reports being in Chapter 5-7. Chapter 8 reports on the excavations and documentary research at Rack Street in the south-east quarter of the city. There follows a series of papers covering recent research into the archaeometallurgical debris, dendrochronology, Roman pottery, Roman ceramic building material, Roman querns and millstones, Claudian coins, an overview of the Roman coins from Exeter and Devon, medieval pottery, and the human remains found in a series of medieval cemeteries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Anyone interested in the history and archaeology of Exeter and the south-west of England will want to have these two substantial volumes on their shelves. ...Volume 2 opens with a summary of all archaeological excavations in Exeter, from 1931 to 2019. Of all the contributions to these volumes, this will probably prove to have the greatest enduring value: anyone who has attempted to research the archaeology of England's historic towns will know that finding out what has been done and how any reports or archives may be accessed can often be very difficult. * Medieval Archaeology *
