In 1938-9 the basements for the new Public Library were excavated and the work was watched by Mr E.J. Rudsdale. The NW corner of the insula was found along with walls and a tessellated pavement (See Hull's Roman Colchester for a detailed description).<1>
THIS IS A DUPLICATE EVENT WITH ECC234. THE CONFUSION LIES IN THE FACT HULL's NO 161 & 162 ARE THE SAME EVENTS BUT RECORDED TWICE BECAUSE THEY FALL IN DIFFERENT INSULAS.
