Report on the excavations at Aldborough (Isurium Brigantum), 2017: The Forum

Change log


Millett, Martin 


Limited excavation revealed part of the northern range of the forum of the Roman town of Isurium Brigantum, first excavated in 1770. It confirmed the accuracy of the eighteenth-century plans, and the trench showed that occupation began in the A.D. 70s, with evidence for timber structures facing the road from York. The forum was constructed as part of a larger programme of town planning c. A.D. 120. There is evidence for changed use of the building with industrial activity in the later fourth or fifth century
