Abstract:
The Society of Antiquaries’ excavation of Silchester’s insula ix in 1893-4 left most of the stratigraphy undisturbed. A new programme of work has shown that the insula underwent radical change, c. AD 250/300, with the construction of new, workshop and residential buildings on the orientation of the Roman street-grid, following the demolition of mid-Roman buildings arranged on different, pre- and early Roman alignments. The plans of several properties and individual buildings were recovered and analysis of the rich range of artefactual and biological data has allowed a detailed and differentiated characterisation of the life and occupations of the inhabitants in the fourth century. The context of the 5th century ogham-inscribed stone is explored and the history of the insula is followed into the 5th/6th century.
