The welcome return of Dr Kevin Leahy.

The ‘Lost Valley’ lies between the rivers Ancholme and Trent in North Lincolnshire and contains a remarkable sequence of archaeological sites. As it lacked a name I have called it ‘Winterton Vale’ after the stream that runs through it. Within the Vale are two Iron Age/Roman settlements, two major villas, a Roman fort, two Anglo-Saxon monasteries and a group of four Anglo-Saxon cemeteries. These are of fifth to eighth century date making it possible to look at the story of Anglo-Saxon Lincolnshire and England in different light.
