Debates about the possible continuation of Roman towns have oscillated over the past fifty years, with opinion mainly shifting between speedy abandonment, gradual decay, and continuing low-level urban activity until Anglo-Saxon takeover in the seventh century. Biddle put an influential case for continuing “central place” functions at a number of sites, with Winchester claimed as demonstrating British/English continuity (1976: 103–12).
