Abstract:
Report presenting the results of an excavation and associated fieldwork carried out between 1995 and 2000 at 168 Fenchurch Street in the City of London. Evidence was revealed of intensive activity during the first decade of Roman occupation (AD 50--60), early structures being replaced by more substantial buildings representing a phase of occupation which appears to have been commercial in nature. The west end of the site remained open throughout this period and may have functioned as a marketplace or open public area. Following destruction by fire, much of the area was levelled over with redeposited fire debris and the evidence suggests that it may have been up to a decade before the resumption of any serious activity on the site. Remains of the foundations of the south wing of the first forum, constructed in the AD 70s, were recorded on the western limit of the site, together with fragments of associated floor surfaces. The foundations of the south and east wings of the much larger second forum were recorded at several locations across the site. The new forum-basilica complex, built in AD 100--30, occupied an area approximately five times larger than its predecessor. Evidence for the external courtyard was limited to make-ups and construction levels, and survival of associated internal surfaces was fragmentary. An isolated ragstone wall foundation in the eastern part of the site may be part of a late Roman building. There was extensive robbing of the forum foundations during the early medieval period which may have been associated with the construction of St Dionis Backchurch between 1089 and 1108, foundations of which were recorded. Later medieval occupation included a chalk-lined well and cesspit in the western half of the site. Includes French and German summaries, and specialist reports on
