Die Befunde der Insula 39 in der Colonia Ulpia Traiana (Xanten)

Kerstin Kraus


Report on excavations that took place between 1987 and 1994, in the northern part of the Insula 39, situated between the amphitheatre and a guest-house. The remains date from the outset of the colonia, shortly after the founding of the town by Trajan to the third century AD. An L-shaped building, silversmith's workshop, a tank-system indicating a tannery or dye-work, remains of smaller houses, courtyards and sheds were found.
