Abstract
1 - 44
The excavation of a Roman sewer, apparently serving the bath house of the legionary fortress at York, produced biological evidence representing species living in the sewer, those which could have come from the area of the fortress, and other non-local elements. Insects were the most numerous and their remains formed the basis of the interpretation suggested here. They included species tolerant of foul conditions and there was some evidence for latrine sediments, and for pests of stored grain from a building nearby. Water for the baths must have come along a closed aqueduct from a spring in a mixed oak wood. With contributions by R.A.D. Cameron, J.R.A. Greig, R.W. Meyrick, D.J. Rackham, C. Simms, A. Wheeler and A. Wilson. See also 77/4425, 4441.
