Abstract/Summary

The report describes the changes associated with the imposition of the Roman street grid on the Iron Age oppidum in the late 1st century CE. A key feature is that the new build within the insula followed the Iron Age alignment at 45 degrees to the street grid. A single property within the excavated area is described at length, its constituent buildings (of timber) form a single property which included a town house flanked by kitchen building and a circular house, perhaps to accommodate a healer or teacher. A taberna opened on to the north-south street. The report is accompanied by detailed reports on the associated material culture and environmental evidence.
