Report on the Excavations at Aldborough (Isurium Brigantum) 2016 (Building 4.8)
This is the final report for excavations at Aldborough in 2016 by the Aldborough Roman Town Project. It concerns the re-opening of part of the excavation of a Roman building first examined in the 1830s and 40s. The work established that the 19th century plans were very accurate and that the buildings remain in good condition. The structure was confirmed to form part of a domestic bath suite constructed in the second century AD at the north-west corner of the courtyard of a town house. Although no undisturbed deposits were excavated, studies of redeposited Roman finds provide some evidence for the chronology of this part of the Roman town. Finds from a 19th-century rubbish deposit are also summarized.
