This report concerns 1st and 2nd century buildings and occupation on the western of the 2 hills on which Roman London was built.

It is argued that the development of London was at no stage haphazard or uncontrolled. It was laid out before the Boudiccan rebellion and became built up during the Favian period. Occupation continued even after the densely settled town was destroyed in the Hadrianic fire but all areas show signs of decay by the end of the 2nd century
