Full Description

East-west Roman road to the south situated between Insula 22 and 14. The street was of two phases. The southern edge of the early street lay 10ft. north of the northern wall of the temple precinct (MCC1544). Its northern edge had been destroyed by the Castle bailey ditch. The metalling was of 'good quality and unrepaired'. It produced no finds though and could not be dated. The second phase followed a period of silting, and consisted of a street-level of rough cobbling with many brick fragments. It was sited closer to the northern wall of the precinct and pottery from its metalling was consistent with a late third century date.<1>
